Two out of conference games and five MEAC contests at home highlight Norfolk State’s 2012 football schedule. The MEAC champion Spartans will face Liberty and Ohio University in September, and will close out the regular season with two home games against Savannah State and Morgan State.
For the second straight year, NSU will play 11 straight games without a bye week before having off the final week of the FCS regular season on Nov. 17. The Spartans navigated that stretch well in 2011, finishing 9-3, winning their first-ever MEAC football title and making their initial FCS playoff appearance. (NSUSpartans.com)
