Key Games

2/8 vs Duke

The Panthers shocked everyone last season with their emergence into the top 25 early in the season. Their run started after taking down Duke in a mid-week contest in Durham. High Point looks to beat the Blue Devils again and do it at home this time. 

2/25 @ Virginia

High Point will travel to Charlottesville to take on the reigning national champions and looks to earn their second consecutive win on the road against the Cavaliers. High Point beat Virginia last season and in 2016 in overtime. 

2/29 @ Robert Morris

3-2 all-time against the Colonels, High Point will travel to take on the reigning back-to-back NEC champions. Both squads come off of great years and lose a lot of key talent on both ends of the field. High Point beat Robert Morris 16-15 at home last season and looks to earn their second-ever win in Moon Township in 2020. 

3/21 @ Richmond

The Panthers and Spiders will meet in Richmond for a SoCon championship rematch. These two squads split their two contest last season with Richmond winning the SoCon championship game and High Point winning the regular-season meeting. 

4/25 vs Jacksonville

High Point’s only conference loss last season came to Jacksonville. The Dolphins beat the Panthers 12-10 in last season’s meeting. The Panthers will be looking for revenge against the Dolphins to close out their regular season.
