FRANKFORT, Ky. – Kentucky State University’s Director of Athletics, Dr. Denisha L. Hendricks has announced the 2012 Thorobred Football schedule.
The Thorobreds kickoff the 2012 campaign on September 8 in a home, non-conference battle against Kentucky Wesleyan College at 7 p.m.
“We are very excited about the 2012 season,” stated Hendricks. “Coach Dickens and his staff have worked tirelessly to prepare the team for another competitive season.”
The nine-game regular season schedule consists of four home games, including homecoming, and five road games. Entering the second year of the East-West Divisional format in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, the Breds will play a seven-game conference schedule this year.
After opening at home, the Thorobreds hit the road for two weeks, playing at Lincoln University (Pa.) on September 15 and then at Stillman College on September 22 for their first West Division game. They end September with a home game against East Division foe, Albany State University.
KSU heads Georgia on October 6 for another cross-division game against Fort Valley State University. On October 13 at 1:30 p.m., the Breds battle will Miles College in the 2012 Homecoming game. Last year, KSU won it’s first homecoming game in nine years with a 25-24 victory over FVSU.
The Thorobreds’ final three games of the regular season feature battles against two West Division and one East Division school. On October 20 KSU takes on the Tuskegee Golden Tigers, a game sure to continue the high-intensity play after the Breds defeated TU last year for the first time in 13 years. The Breds have a home game against Lane College on October 27 and end the regular season with an away game on November 3 against Morehouse College.
