Delaware State and East Tennessee State have agreed to a two-year football series beginning in 2021, according a Delaware State news release.

Under the agreement, the Hornets and Bucs will meet for the first time ever on Sep. 18, 2021 at ETSU’s Greene Stadium. The second game is set for Sep. 24, 2022 at Delaware State’s Alumni Stadium in Dover, Delaware.

ETSU will open the 2021 season Sept. 4 at Vanderbilt. That is the only game for the 2021 season the school has announced.

Delaware State has faced just one Southern Conference school in its football history. The Hornets have beaten VMI twice, in 2011 and 2012.
