While it has taken a bit longer for teams and conference to get their schedules together for the 2021 season due to the Coronavirus outbreak and various restrictions surrounding the virus, Schedule release schedule has finally begun!

The Canisius Golden Griffins are the 13th DI team and fourth from the MAAC to release their full 2021 schedule. The Griffins come into the 2021 season after going 0-5 during the shortened 2020 season.

Games to Circle

3/13 vs Manhattan: Canisius has lost to Manhattan once since 2007. That loss was in 2019, when the Jaspers skimmed by, 7-6. It was one of many tightly contested battles, including multiple overtime contests, that these two have had throughout the years.

3/20 vs St. Bonaventure: The Griffins and the Bonnies both went winless during the shortened 2020 campaign. With both teams having some younger pieces on both ends of the field, this could be an interesting one. Canisius has won their only meeting in 2019, 16-8.

3/27 @ Marist: Marist is viewed as the sure-fire favorite and most talented team in the MAAC this season, and they are the reigning conference champs (2019). During that last full season in 2019, Canisius fell to Marist twice. They lost 10-8 in the regular season and 11-10 in the MAAC semifinals.
