Kennesaw State announces 2017 football schedule

The Kennesaw State Owls released their 2017 football schedule on Thursday, an 11-game slate that includes six home games and five road games.

The season will kick off on the road with a Thursday night game on August 31 at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, and end on Saturday, November 18 at home versus Big South foe Monmouth. The Owls will have an open week on September 23.

If you’re up for an extremely long road trip, the team’s trip to Bozeman, Montana will carry them 1,961 miles from Kennesaw State’s campus. The team’s four other road games combined only total a distance of 938 miles together.

According to KSU, game times and game designations such as Homecoming and Hall of Fame weekend will be announced at a later date. All Kennesaw State football games can be heard on ESPN Radio 1230 The Fan 2.
