Future schedules: 2018 slate released

Remember back in August 2009 when Army and Oklahoma announced a two-game football series.

Some current Army football players were in elementary school when the two historic programs agreed to meet for the first time since 1961.

The first game in the future series is getting closer to reality as Army released its 2018 schedule Thursday.

Army’s road game against Oklahoma on Sept. 22 is the marquee matchup outside of the service-academy games on the Black Knights 2018 slate.

Army will open the 2018 season on the road at Duke on Sept. 1. The Black Knights’ home opener is Sept. 8 against Liberty, a rising Division I-A program.

The Black Knights will play four of their first six 2018 games away from Michie Stadium. The Oklahoma game starts a three-game road stretch.

Three of Army’s six home games are in November with the annual service-academy matchup against Air Force (Nov. 3) as the most attractive game at Michie Stadium. The Black Knights play Division I-AA opponents Lafayette (Nov. 10) and Colgate (Nov. 17) at West Point and have two weeks off before its Dec. 8 game against Navy at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Earlier this week, future sites for Army-Navy games from 2018 through 2022 were announced. Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field will play host to the service-academy rivalry in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2022. The game will be played in the New York/New Jersey area for the first time since 2002 when Army and Navy clash in 2021 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
