Bethune-Cookman officially released the 2013 football schedule on Wednesday, Feb. 6, as announced by B-CU Director of Athletics Lynn W. Thompson. The 12-game regular season slate is the first of its kind for B-CU since 2002.

Under the direction of head coach Brian Jenkins, recently completing his third year at the helm in Daytona Beach, the 2012 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion Wildcats will host five games inside Larry Kelly Field at Municipal Stadium on the 2013 slate.

The 2013 campaign opens with a trip to Tennessee State on Sunday, Sept. 1, as the Wildcats meet the Tigers for the John Merritt Classic at L.P. Field in Nashville, Tenn. The Tigers took a hard-fought 21-14 game from the Wildcats last year in front of a near-capacity crowd in Daytona Beach. The Cats then return to Daytona Beach for their home-opener against the Virginia Union Panthers on Sept. 7.

The following weekend, B-CU continues its new tradition of playing at least one BCS opponent as the Wildcats travel to Miami to face the FIU Panthers on Sept. 21. Network television will determine the kickoff time for that game up to 10 days out. B-CU will conclude the month of September with a game to be determined by next week.

The Cats stay on the road for the first two weeks in October as they open Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) play at Delaware State (Oct. 5) and Howard (Oct. 12). The games against the Hornets and Bison see resurgence in contests against those teams as they replace North Carolina A&T and Morgan State, respectively. It'll be the first time in two years B-CU has faced Howard and Delaware State.

Bethune-Cookman returns home to host Savannah State for the Third Annual Biker Classic on Oct. 19, followed by one of the biggest Homecoming weekends in recent history as the Cats welcome South Carolina State to Municipal Stadium on Oct. 26. Both of those games have kickoff set at 4 p.m.

B-CU hits the road to open its November slate with a trip to North Carolina Central (Nov. 2), before returning home for a pair of games against Virginia Tidewater-area foes Norfolk State (Nov. 9) and Hampton (Nov. 16), respectively. The month closes with the annual Florida Blue Florida Classic against Florida A&M at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando on Nov. 23.
