Towson football unveils 2015 schedule

Towson scheduleThe Towson Tigers have a home-friendly football schedule, with the schedule being split 6-5 but with back-to-back home games twice and back-to-back road games just once. Towson has five of their seven games at home from Sept. 12 to Oct. 31.

In 2015, Towson will open up on the road against American Athletic Conference member East Carolina on Sept. 5. The Pirates finished 8-5 in the AAC last season and played Florida in the Birmingham Bowl. They outscored opponent 35.8 to 25.8 points per game a year ago and out-gained teams 6,929 yards to 4,775 yards.

But after getting a huge challenge early they’ll host St. Francis (Pa.) on Sept 12. Towson is 3-0 against the Red Flash. St. Francis (Pa.) is led by running back Khairi Dickson, who averaged 5.6 yards per carry on his way to 1,796 yards (5th most in FCS) and 12 touchdowns.

One week later they’ll stay at home and host Holy Cross of the Patriots League. Holy Cross last played Towson in 2013 and the Tigers dominated the game on their way to a 49-7 victory. The Crusaders went just 2-4 last year but return a dangerous dual-threat quarterback in Peter Pujals. He threw for 2,353 yards and 10 touchdowns last year and rank for a team-high 830 yards and six more scores.

Towson hits the road a week later when they open their conference slate at Elon. Elon struggled in their first season in the CAA, going 0-8, but they nearly picked up their first win of the year against the Tigers at Johnny Unitas Stadium but Towson edged them out for the 21-19 victory.

The Tigers will get to enjoy a bye week before returning home to play James Madison two weeks later on Oct. 10. Towson likely burnt their tape of last year’s game after a 62-7 loss. All-time the Tigers are just 6-19-1 against the Dukes. Former Georgia Tech star Vad Lee returns for his senior season. Last year, he threw for 3,462 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for a team-high 826 yards and nine scores.

A week later the Tigers hit the road to play at Stony Brook. Last year Towson lost to Stony Brook at home, 14-3. The Seawolves return their top offensive player in Stacey Bedell, who rushed for 1,070 yards as a sophomore, but they lose top defender Christian Ricard. Last year, Ricard led Stony Brook with 92 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss and was second with nine sacks.

The final two weekends in October will feature home games against Villanova and Delaware.

Villanova finished last season 11-3 with a victory over the Tigers and were the No. 6 seed in the NCAA tournament. They beat Liberty in the second round but fell to Sam Houston State in the quarterfinals. The Wildcats will lose their top rusher from 2014, Kevin Monangai, and top receiver, Poppy Livers. However, they do return quarterback John Robertson, receiver Kevin Gulyas and linebacker Don Cherry, who had 134 tackles, 21.5 tackles for a loss and 10 sacks as a junior. Robertson threw 35 touchdowns and rushed for 11 more while Gulyas has nine touchdowns and 677 receiving yards.

Towson beat Delaware in Newark last year, 24-17.

Their final two road games are trips to Maine and then William & Mary. Towson was barely edged by Maine last season, 27-24 and lost to the Pride, 37-14. At the time, the Pride were ranked in the top 25 when the two played each other.

Towson will conclude their regular season at home against Rhode Island. Towson lost to Rhode Island in the season finale last year, 13-7. Towson is 6-7 all-time against the Rams. That win over Towson was their only victory of the season.

For a second-straight season, the Tigers have avoided New Hampshire on their schedule. The Wildcats were the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
