CAA Football Announces Schedule For 2023 Season

CAA Football, which expands to 15 teams in 2023 with the addition of Campbell and North Carolina A&T, has announced its schedule for the upcoming season.

The conference slate once again includes four home games and four road contests for each team. Under the league’s new scheduling format, each team is paired with two permanent partners that it faces every season. The other six conference opponents rotate through the schedule, ensuring that all teams meet each other at least once at home and on the road over an eight-year period. Limiting air travel to reduce costs was also a priority in the new scheduling model, with most teams not having more than one flight each season during conference play.

Conference action in 2023 kicks off on Thursday, August 31 with league newcomer Campbell hosting 2022 CAA co-champion William & Mary and Delaware visiting Stony Brook. North Carolina A&T makes its CAA Football debut on Saturday, September 16 with a short trip to Elon. There is at least one conference matchup during all 12 weeks of the regular season.

The non-conference schedule features 14 games against FBS opponents. Half of those contests are against teams from Power 5 leagues, including three against ACC squads and three versus Big Ten foes. CAA Football teams have 19 victories over FBS opponents since 2009, including two last season. CAA Football has been dominant against non-conference FCS competition, posting a 21-5 record (.808) during the 2022 regular season, which was the best of any league.

CAA Football had five teams (Delaware, Elon, New Hampshire, Richmond and William & Mary) receive berths in the 2022 NCAA FCS playoffs. The five selections were the most for the conference since 2018 and marked the 11th time that at least four CAA teams were chosen for the playoffs.
