Newberry to take on The Citadel in Charleston to open 2017 season
Monday, September 12, 2016 | by Josh Manck, Former Assistant AD for Athletic Communications

NEWBERRY – The Newberry College football team will open its 2017 schedule in the Holy City, with the Wolves set to visit The Citadel for the first time in 20 years.

Newberry and The Citadel will meet on the gridiron for the 41st time at The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium in a one-year agreement announced by the schools today.

Newberry last faced The Citadel in 1997 and Johnson Hagood has been the site of the last 16 meetings between the teams, dating back to a 1948 game in Newberry.

Newberry is 4-32-4 all-time against the Bulldogs, with the last win coming in 1958.

The addition of the game at The Citadel leaves the Wolves one game short of a completed 2017 schedule. Only Week Three remains as an open date.
