LORMAN, Miss. – The Alcorn State 2022 football schedule features five home games and eight Southwestern Athletic Conference competitions, the university announced on Tuesday. The Braves will open at Jack Spinks – Marino Casem Football Stadium against Stephen F. Austin University on Sept. 3, 2022, and close the regular season versus in-state rival Jackson State University on Nov. 19, 2022 at Spinks Stadium.

“We are starting spring practice, and now is when we lay the groundwork for success in the upcoming season,” said head coach Fred McNair. “We had some setbacks last year, but we return to form and play Braves football the way we know how to play it.”

The 11-game schedule features home conference games against Arkansas – Pine Bluff, Texas Southern, Bethune Cookman, and Jackson State. The first non-conference game will be at Spinks – Casem Stadium, but the remaining out of SWAC contests against Tulane and McNeese State will be on the road.
