UMass 2024 Football Schedule: Full List of the Minutemen’s Opponents This Fall

    Find every opponent and location for the official UMass 2024 football schedule as the Minutemen look to hit four wins for the first time since 2018.

    Last season was one of the most successful for the UMass Minutemen since they returned to the FBS in 2012. Three wins isn’t a lot to most teams, but it equaled the sum of their previous four campaigns. Can Don Brown’s team build on that in the upcoming season? The UMass 2024 football schedule offers opportunities and pitfalls aplenty for the Minutemen.

    According to the CFN Strength of Schedule, the UMass 2024 football schedule ranks 67th in the nation, bang in the middle of the extended 134-team field for the upcoming campaign. Multiple dates with the SEC toughen up a calendar containing multiple FCS teams and an intriguing glance into the program’s future.

    The FCS dates with the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils and Wagner Seahawks in Weeks 4 and 9 help push the Minutemen toward surpassing the three-win mark. However, scheduling two FCS outfits does impact any potential bid for bowl eligibility.

    The Minutemen will move back to the MAC next season, and the UMass 2024 football schedule is heavy with future opponents. A home tie with the Eastern Michigan Eagles to open the season offers the best chance of taking a win from that five-game slate, while road trips to the Toledo Rockets and the reigning MAC champion Miami (OH) RedHawks will be tough to overcome.

A clash with the Liberty Flames slides in among the hard side of the schedule before the season-ending rivalry game with the UConn Huskies — one of the four potential wins this year.
