HARRISONBURG, Va. - James Madison University is working with the University of North Carolina to still meet during the 2011 football season. The Tar Heels have added the University of Louisville to their football schedule on Sept. 3 of next year as part of a home-and-home series that was announced by UL on Friday, the date originally scheduled for the Dukes to travel to Chapel Hill, N.C., to take on the Tar Heels.
UNC has been in contact with us during the process of their work with the University of Louisville, which we appreciate," JMU Director of Athletics Jeff Bourne said. "They are working with us to stay on the schedule for the 2011 season, as is the Colonial Athletic Association. We believe that everyone wants to play this game and are working towards making that happen."
Once the scheduling situation is complete, a formal announcement will be made about next year's schedule.
JMU wrapped up its 39th season of play on Saturday with a dramatic 14-10 win at Maine, giving the program its seventh straight winning season.
