The Green & Gold will host Wofford on Sept. 9 for its home opener, as the game will be part of W&M’s Hall of Fame weekend.

A trip to Charleston Southern comes the following weekend, as W&M and the Buccaneers will meet for the first time. The teams will meet again in 2025 when the Buccaneers visit Williamsburg.

Following conference games versus Maine (Sept. 23) and at Elon (Sept. 30), the Tribe will play at Virginia in is annual FBS game on Oct. 7.

After an open date, W&M will return to conference play with a Homecoming Weekend matchup against Towson on Oct. 21 followed by another home game versus Monmouth (Oct. 28), which will highlight Family Weekend.

The Tribe will then travel to UAlbany (Nov. 4) and Hampton (Nov. 11) before concluding its regular season slate at Zable Stadium against longtime rival Richmond in the Capital Cup Game Presented by C&F Bank on Nov. 18. The season finale will mark the 134th matchup between W&M and UR.
