JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Aug. 11, 2016) – The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced kickoff times on Thursday for the 2016 Buccaneer football home games. 

The Buccaneers, who are playing a full Southern Conference schedule this season, will host six home games – including the conference opener on Sept. 17 at Bristol Motor Speedway. The “Bucs at Bristol” game is set for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff. 

The Bucs’ remaining five home games will be played at Kermit Tipton Stadium. There will be two noon kickoffs, Oct. 1 against Chattanooga and Oct. 15 versus Furman. 

ETSU’s lone night game at Kermit Tipton Stadium will be a 7:30 p.m. start against West Virginia Wesleyan on Thursday, Oct. 20, while the Bucs’ Homecoming game versus Cumberland is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start on Nov. 12. ETSU wraps up its regular season schedule with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff against Samford on Nov. 19. 

“Our athletic administration has worked hard to structure the times for our 2016 home games,” said head coach Carl Torbush, whose Buccaneers open the season on Sept. 3 at Kennesaw State. “Our fan base is very passionate about football. We tried to schedule our game times to the best of our ability so it would allow our fans to not only enjoy ETSU football, but other college football games around the country.” 

The SoCon deadline to release home conference game times is Aug. 15.
