A-State Football Announces 2022 Schedule

May 11, 2022

Football 2/28/2022 10:52:00 PM

JONESBORO, Ark. (3/1/22) – The Arkansas State football team announced its complete 2022 schedule Tuesday, which kicks off at home on Saturday, Sept. 3, against Grambling State and features five additional Saturday games at Centennial Bank Stadium.

The Red Wolves will begin their second season under head coach Butch Jones with three non-conference games in September against Grambling State, Ohio State and Memphis before closing out the month with their first Sun Belt Conference (SBC) game of the year against East Division-member Old Dominion.

Following its season and home opener against the Tigers, A-State’s next three games will all be played on the road to leave the Red Wolves with five home outings over their last eight regular-season contests.  They will play three games at Centennial Bank Stadium in the month of October and an additional two in November.

Arkansas State’s game versus Grambling State will mark just the second meeting between the two programs and the seventh time over the past 10 seasons the Red Wolves have played their season opener at home.

A-State will then travel to Columbus to face eight-time national champion Ohio State for the first time in school history on Sept. 10, one week before its 61st all-time match-up against Memphis.  The three-game road swing will conclude Sept. 24 at Old Dominion, one of two Sun Belt East Division opponents on the Red Wolves’ schedule and another team they have never played before.

The month of October will begin with a pair of home games for A-State as it continues league play.  The Red Wolves will play their first SBC West Division game of the season on Oct. 1 when they host ULM, and James Madison out of the East Division will play its first ever game in Jonesboro the following Saturday.

Back-to-back road games at Southern Miss and defending Sun Belt Conference-champion Louisiana are set for Oct. 15 and Oct. 22, respectively.  A-State will play the Golden Eagles for the 12th time in school history and first time since 2008, while its game against the Ragin’ Cajuns will be played on a Saturday for just the fourth time over the last 11 seasons (2012-22).

Arkansas State returns home to play South Alabama on Oct. 29, followed by its only open week of the season.  The Red Wolves will play two of their final three games at Centennial Bank Stadium, starting with their final non-conference contest against UMass on Nov. 12.

Resuming Sun Belt play on Nov. 19, A-State will play Texas State in San Marcos before hosting Troy, which is now competing in the SBC’s West Division, in its regular-season finale on Nov. 26.  The Sun Belt Conference Championship game will be played Saturday, Dec. 3.

Season tickets for the Red Wolves’ 2022 campaign are available for purchase, and the renewal period (June 15 deadline) for current season ticket holders is also underway.  Tickets may be purchased or renewed by calling the Red Wolves Foundation at 870-972-2401 or online by visiting AStateRedWolves.com/tickets.
