The Lindenwood football team announced its 2013 schedule this week. The Lions will play 10 games next season, including nine MIAA contests and five games at Hunter Stadium.

The Lions will open the year under the lights with a Thursday night game against Lincoln on Sept. 5. The contest will be the second time in program history that Lindenwood has opened the season with a home Thursday night game.

Lindenwood will celebrate Homecoming on Oct. 19 with a contest against Emporia State. The Lions will also appear on the MIAA Game of the Week two times with an Oct. 5 game at Nebraska-Kearney and a Nov. 9 contest at home against Pittsburg State.

Other games at Hunter Stadium are a Sept. 28 non-conference game with Missouri S&T and an Oct. 12 MIAA game against Fort Hays State. Lindenwood will travel to Southwest Baptist on Sept. 14, Central Missouri on Sept. 21, Washburn on Oct. 26, and Missouri Southern on Nov. 2.

Lindenwood will be competing in the MIAA for the second season in 2013. Last year, the Lions finished fourth in the league with a 7-3 record.
