CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Coastal Carolina University has published the football schedule for 2017, the first year the Chanticleers will be a member of the NCAA Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision and the Sun Belt Conference.

CCU is in its second year of its two-year transition to the FBS, and is eligible to play for a conference title, according to a news release from CCU Athletics.

The schedule includes a total of six home games, and will open the season at home on September 2 against UMass, the release states.

“This will be a historic season for both our program and Coastal Carolina University,” said sixth-year CCU head coach Joe Moglia. “We are looking forward to our first season in the FBS and as a Sun Belt Conference member as we start traditions with our new conference members while playing a very competitive non-conference schedule. Our coaches and players – and hopefully our fans – are ready to experience new campuses while playing across different parts of the country.”

Below is the 2017 schedule, from the CCU news release:
