NORFOLK, Va. (NSUSpartans.com) – Norfolk State University and Towson University jointly announced Thursday a two-game, home-and-home football series between the schools in 2023 and 2024.

The series begins with an Oct. 7, 2023 matchup at Towson’s Unitas Stadium. The teams will also square off the following year at NSU’s Dick Price Stadium on Aug. 31, 2024.

The teams have met just once previously, a 31-21 win by Towson in the 1984 Division II playoffs. This will be their first matchup as Division I FCS programs.

“We very much look forward to facing a quality non-conference opponent like Towson,” NSU head coach Latrell Scott said. “I’ve known (Towson coach) Rob Ambrose for a long time and have great respect for his program. We know that those will be two competitive games that our fans will be excited about.”

“It is great to be able to play a strong, quality opponent in Norfolk State,” Ambrose said. “They are one of the top competitors in the MEAC and are going to be a challenge in our non-conference schedule these two seasons.”

More information on future NSU football schedules will be announced soon.
