NORFOLK, Va. - Norfolk State University Athletics Director Marty L. Miller announced Wednesday that the Spartans' remaining two-game football series with Virginia State has been cancelled and replaced with a home-and-home series with the University of Maine.

Virginia State recently made NSU aware of an NCAA Division II bylaw which will prohibit the Trojans from playing the Spartans in the teams' customary Labor Day Classic game. The bylaw sets the first date of competition for Division II football teams as the Thursday preceding Sept. 6. NSU and VSU were to play on Aug. 31, 2013 and Aug. 30, 2014.

The Spartans will welcome the Black Bears of Maine to Dick Price Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 31, to kick off the 2013 season. NSU will make a return trip to Orono, Maine, on Aug. 30, 2014. The teams have never met before on the gridiron. Maine went 5-6 overall, 4-4 in the CAA last season.

Miller added that the entire 2013 schedule will be released in the coming days.
