PINE BLUFF, Ark. – The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Department of Athletics has released its 2014 football schedule, a slate of 11 games that includes five home contests, six road games and two matchups against first-ever opponents.

UAPB head football coach Monte Coleman calls his team’s schedule a challenging one that should be exciting for both the players and the fans.

“I am excited about the 2014 season and schedule. Of course, we know, we will play nine conference games.  But our two nonconference games will also be exciting against Texas State and Concordia College out of Selma, Ala.,” said UAPB Head Football Coach Monte Colman.

UAPB will open up the 2014 season on the road against Texas State at Bobcat Stadium in San Marcos, Tex. on Saturday, Aug. 30.  This will be the first-ever meeting on the gridiron between the Golden Lions and Bobcats.

The following weekend, September 6, the Golden Lions will return to the friendly confines of Golden Lion Stadium in their home-opener against Concordia College on Saturday, Sept. 6.  This first-ever matchup will serve as UAPB’s annual High School and Community Appreciation Day.

After a one week hiatus, UAPB will travel to Montgomery, Ala., to take on Alabama State on Saturday, Sept. 20 at ASU Stadium.   In last year’s meeting, the Hornets scored the game-winner with just 4:10 left in the contest to give ‘Bama State a 40-39 win.

In the annual Military Appreciation Game, UAPB will welcome rival Jackson State to Golden Lion Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 27 in a 6 p.m. start.  Last season, the JSU Tigers avenged a pair of defeats to the Golden Lions from the 2012 season.

In the month of October, the Golden Lions will be the foes for three opponent homecoming games, starting with the October 4 contest against Southern University at A.W. Mumford Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.  This contest will have a 5:30 p.m. kickoff.

Following a bye weekend on Oct. 11, UAPB will then take on Grambling State and Texas Southern on those teams’ homecoming dates.  The UAPB-GSU game will be played on Saturday, Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. at Eddie G. Robinson Stadium.  A week later, the Golden Lions will travel to Houston, Texas to take on the TSU Tigers at BBVA Compass Stadium at 2 p.m.

After three straight road contests, UAPB will return to Golden Lion Stadium for back-to-back home games against Mississippi Valley State and Prairie View A&M, with UAPB taking on the MVSU Delta Devils on Saturday, Nov. 1 in a 2:30 p.m. start in their annual Take-A-Kid-to-the-Game Day.  On Saturday, November 8, the Panthers of Prairie View A&M will come to Golden Lion Stadium for UAPB’s homecoming at 2:30 p.m.

In final road trip of the regular-season, UAPB will travel to Alcorn State, Miss. to take on the Alcorn State Braves at Jack Spinks-Marino Casem Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 15 at 4 p.m.

UAPB will close out the 2014 regular-season against Alabama A&M on Saturday, Nov. 22 at Golden Lion Stadium.  This contest will serve as the Golden Lions’ annual Senior Day/Church Day game and will be played in honor of the departing senior class.  Area church groups will be invited as special guests of the Department of Athletics.

“I truly believe this will be a very competitive season in the SWAC with the parity in the conference,” Coleman added.

The Toyota Southwestern Athletic Conference championship game is scheduled for Saturday, December 6 at Reliant Stadium in Houston.

“Spring practice has gone extremely well and we are looking forward to the start of the 2014 season to get back to our winning ways of 2012 and to get bitter taste out of our mouth from last season,” Coleman concluded.

Season tickets to Arkansas-Pine Bluff’s home games in Pine Bluff went on sale on May 1.
