JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 18, 2018)  The ETSU football program announced Thursday that the Buccaneers have reached an agreement to play the University of North Carolina in 2022. 

“We are very excited to make this game announcement and want to thank North Carolina for giving us this opportunity,” said head coach Randy Sanders. “This adds to an already strong list of teams we are preparing to play in the future, and it is great for our program to play teams from the ACC and SEC.”

The Buccaneers will earn a game guarantee of $450,000, and the game will be played at Kenan Memorial Stadium on Nov. 19. This will mark the first ever meeting between the two programs. 

This marks the fifth future FBS opponent scheduled for the Buccaneers, as ETSU plays at Tennessee this September, and at Vanderbilt in 2019 and 2021. The Blue and Gold also play at FBS foe Appalachian State in 2019 and 2024, along with at Georgia in 2020.
