VMI Announces 2022 Football Schedule

Foster stadium

Six home games and the first meeting with Wake Forest since 1944 highlight the 2022 VMI football schedule.

The Keydets open the ’22 slate at Wake Forest Thursday, Sept. 1, marking the first time they have opened a season against a Power Five school since Ole Miss in 1996 and the first time against an ACC member institution since Virginia in 1985. The Keydets and Demon Deacons will be meeting for the first time since 1944, when both schools were members of the Southern Conference.

VMI returns home the following weekend, Sept. 10, to open a six-game home slate, with Bucknell visiting Lexington in a series that was last played in 2016. The Cornell Big Red visit the following weekend, Sept. 17, to close out the nonconference schedule.

Following a bye week, VMI opens the Southern Conference schedule Oct. 1 at Western Carolina, which starts an eight-game journey through the league that culminates with the Military Classic of the South against military college rival The Citadel Nov. 19.

VMI has not played six home games at Foster Stadium since the 2015 campaign.
