Sadly most of the major schools geographically near lewisburg don't want the loss. Sans Villanova.

2017-18 Schedule

Interesting. I wouldn't mind seeing those three on the schedule.

It appears that none of these games could be part of a tournament, which seems to rule out Bucknell participating in any of the bigger multi-team events. Both UNC and Arkansas are booked into the huge Phil Knight event in Portland, and that tournament only has strong majors who are Nike affiliates.




UNC released their schedule today. They will host the Bison on November 15th as a preliminary part of the Phil Knight Nike event that hadn't been announced before. I assume that is also what the game with Arkansas will be - which means it will be in November (or very early December) as well.

Will the Tarheels be Bucknell's opening game?

Very unlikely. First date that games can be played is Friday November 10th, and it is very likely the Bison will play a game that weekend. Might even play Friday and Sunday, especially if they are forced into scheduling a D2/D3 team to fill out the schedule.

Were you hopeful that UNC was going to give us a game at Sojka in 2018-19?

I like that Bucknell was not deemed noteworthy by this Raleigh sports writer.

I've been a huge Tar Heel fan as long as I can remember but I really like this game. A senior-laden Bucknell squad is the type of team that gives the Heels fits. Without Tony Bradley, Nana will be able to hold his own. If the Bison aren't intimidated by Carolina or the Dean Dome and come out shooting, we'll give them a game. It sounds crazy given they are the defending champs but if Carolina is discombobulated and undisciplined, as they can be with "easy" competition early in the season, this game could be really fun!

The Bison have never played UNC. Of the 15 ACC schools, there are two others who have never played Bucknell. Who can name them?


Btw, the Bison have won 11 games vs teams now in the ACC. It helps that they have 9 wins over Pitt.

I seem to have a vague memory that we played Florida State. I like the Louisville guess and will add....hmmm...Miami.

So it appears my source was very good after all! Go Bison! I too have been a lifelong Tarheel fan, but for the first time in my life I will be routing against them Nov 15th!

You're correct on Louisville and correct on the other two wins, i.e. Syracuse and Virginia. But as BRW suggested, the Bison did play Florida State (in 1987). They also played at Miami in 1969 and 1970. But they have never played Georgia Tech.

UNC's release describes the Bucknell visit as "an early-round game."

Arkansas hosts Samford on Friday Nov 10, and Bucknell is said to be hosting Siena on Nov 21. If the rumored Arkansas game is also "early round" and the Maryland rumors are true, that could mean the Bison are lined up for an intense road swing:
Nov 12 or 13?: at Arkansas
Nov 15: at North Carolina
Nov 18: at Maryland

I think Arkansas could very well slot in on the 12th or 13th, but it might be after UNC as well. The true PK80 tournament in Oregon starts November 23rd, so there is plenty of time to play Arkansas on the 18th, or even the 17th or 19th. Maryland is not part of the tournament, so - unless I am missing something - that game could be played at the end of November or in December.

You may have missed earlier where it was reported that the Maryland game is supposed to be on the 18th.

Considering the difficulties in getting teams to play Bison caliber, low major opponents, this is a robust schedule with three good opportunities at marquis win.

I agree UNC can be had. I was very impressed with the competitiveness we showed in the WVU game. I think we are going to be crazy good.

Yes, I missed that - or forgot it. That definitely squeezes the dates for Arkansas.
