Bucknell to kick off 2011 season at home
Lewisburg, PA (Sports Network) - Bucknell will open the 2011 football season with two home games and then play three more at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium in head coach Joe Susan's second second.
Bucknell, which finished 1-10 in Susan's first season last year, announced Wednesday the Bison will kick off the campaign against Duquesne on Sept. 10 and Marist on Sept. 17.
The Bison also will host three Patriot League opponents: Georgetown (Oct. 1); 2010 league champion Lehigh (Oct. 8); and Holy Cross (Oct. 22).
Bucknell's first three road games are against Ivy League foes Cornell (Sept. 17), Princeton (Sept. 24) and Harvard (Oct. 15). The Bison's final three games also will be on the road against Patriot League opponents Lafayette (Oct. 29), Fordham (Nov. 12) and Colgate (Nov. 19).
Fordham is ineligible for the Patriot title, so the game will not count in the league standings.
