EMORY, Va. – The Emory & Henry College Football Team has released the details of its 2016 schedule. This year, the Wasps will see a change in the order of their Old Dominion Athletic Conference games and the addition of a new non-conference opponent.
Emory & Henry opens the season at Ferrum College on Saturday, September 3. The Wasps will see familiar faces on the opposite sideline as former Associate Head Coach Rob Grande is now at the helm of the Panthers’ program.
In week two, Brevard College will make the trip to Southwest Virginia for the first time ever. The Wasps and Tornados will square off on Saturday, September 10 at 3:00 p.m.

On Friday, September 30, E&H will trek to Lexington, Virginia to open conference play against Washington and Lee University. The matchup between the Wasps and Generals is set to kick-off at 6:30 p.m.
A pair of early October home games await Emory & Henry as it will take on Shenandoah University on October 8. Homecoming Weekend follows on October 15 with the Yellow Jackets of Randolph-Macon College playing the visitors. Both games will begin at 1:00 p.m.
Back-to-back road games will be next for the Wasps, traveling to face Bridgewater College on Saturday, October 22 at 2:00 p.m., and then to Hampden-Sydney College on Saturday, October 29 at 1:00 p.m.
