Slippery Rock announces 2013 football schedule

Slippery Rock’s head coach George Mihalik released the 2013 football schedule this morning.

The schedule presents a tough road ahead for The Rock, as six of their games are against opponents who finished the 2012 season with a winning record, and three of those teams competed in the NCAA DII playoffs. Among those teams are PSAC Champion and Super Region One runner-up IUP, Shippensburg, and Bloomsburg. All three teams won at least 10 games last season, with IUP and Shippensburg winning 12.

Slippery Rock will play six games on the road and five on their home field.

SRU will open up at home against Shippensburg on September 14, the second week of the season. They’ll also play Mercyhurst, IUP, California, and Clarion at home this season.

Their first game of the season will come on the road against Northwood. The Rock will also travel to take on Gannon, Kutztown, Edinboro, Seton Hill, and Bloomsburg.
