NORFOLK, Va. ( – Old Dominion University football has announced game times for the 2019 season, beginning with a 7 p.m. start against Norfolk State on Saturday, Aug. 31, in the first game of the new S.B. Ballard Stadium.

“I like the spacing of our home schedule throughout the fall with ample early evening and late afternoon games which should give all Monarch fans plenty of tailgating opportunities as well as time to explore the new stadium and all the food, videoboard entertainment, and other amenities S. B. Ballard stadium will provide,” ODU Director of Athletics Dr. Wood Selig said.
