Lindsey Wilson Football Releases 2024 Schedule

Lindsey Wilson football head coach Phil Kleckler announced the 2024 Blue Raider Football schedule on Tuesday. The 10-game schedule features four non-conference opponents and six opponents from the Mid-South Conference. Lindsey Wilson opens the 2024 campaign with two consecutive road matchups beginning on August 29, 2024, at Texas Wesleyan. The Blue Raiders then head to Point (GA) on September 7, 2024.

Lindsey Wilson welcomes Bluefield (VA) to Parnell Family Stadium for the home opener on September 14, 2024. Following a week off, the Blue Raiders close out the non-conference portion of their schedule against St. Andrews at Homecoming on September 28, 2024.

Against their non-conference competition all-time, the Blue Raiders are 12-0. The season-opening matchup with Texas Wesleyan is the first-ever matchup between the two programs.

Conference play begins with back-to-back road matchups at Faulkner (Ala.) on October 5 and Cumberlands (KY) October 12. The Battle of Highway 55 takes place in Columbia on October 19, as the Blue Raiders look to extend their conference home-opening win streak to seven games.

After a week off, Lindsey Wilson hits the road for the final time in 2024 traveling to Cumberland (TN) on November 5. The season concludes with back-to-back home matchups against Bethel (TN) and Georgetown on November 12 and 19.

Against its 2024 conference opponents, Lindsey Wilson is 48-21 all-time.

The Blue Raiders finished the 2023 season with a 7-3 record and were 4-2 in conference play.

Lindsey Wilson enters the season on a tear of 127 consecutive weeks ranked in the NAIA Coaches Poll. The Blue Raiders were seated as high as No. 9 last year and were ranked at No. 19 in the final poll.

Season tickets and parking passes will be available later this summer from the Lindsey Wilson athletics department.
