On Wednesday, the ODU athletic department unveiled the dates for the 2020 season of Monarch Football.
The highlights include visits by Wake Forest (September 5) and Virginia (October 24). The game against the Demon Deacons is the season opener for the Monarchs.
Old Dominion has a September full of home games, four in total, before they hit the road for a game at UConn. The Huskies football program moves from the American Athletic Conference to being a football independent next fall. The Monarchs have seven home games and five road games in a schedule that should be a favorite for season ticket holders, especially since season ticket prices went down after the teams 1-11 season in 2019.
Seven of the 12 teams on ODU’s schedule finished with a winning record last year. Six of the seven games against winning programs fall in the back half of the schedule as the 2019 combined win-loss total for the last six games in 2020 is 53-28.
This will be Old Dominion’s first season with a new head coach as Ricky Rahne takes over the program.
