Catawba Releases 2020 Football Schedule
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College Director of Athletics, Larry Leckonby, and Head Football Coach, Curtis Walker, have announced the 2020 football schedule. Catawba will open the season on the road at Erskine on Sept. 5 and play its first home game against Barton on Sept. 12.
The Catawba Indians start the 2020 season against two first-year programs in Erskine and Barton. The Barton home game will be Family Weekend for Catawba and is the only home night game on the schedule. It will also bring back to town former Indian head coach Chip Hester, who is guiding Barton in its infancy.
After a road trip for a first-time meeting with Alderson-Broaddus in Philippi, W. Va., Catawba will open conference play at Wingate on Sept. 26.
After playing three of its first four games on the road, the Indians will follow with a stretch of four home games over a six-week span. That starts with back-to-back home games with Limestone and Carson-Newman and closes with consecutive home games against Tusculum and UVa-Wise. Those four games will kickoff at 1 p.m. with UVa-Wise set for Homecoming on Nov. 7.
Catawba closes the regular season with a trip to Hickory, N.C. to face Lenoir-Rhyne on Nov. 14.
