Johnson C. Smith’s 2019 football schedule is a copy of 2018.

The Golden Bulls, who went 2-8 last year, face the same opponents with game sites flipped to four home dates starting Sept. 5 when they host Wingate at McGirt Field.  JCSU, which is 0-6 all-time against the Bulldogs, will open against Wingate for the fifth straight season. The Bulldogs won 36-0 last year.

The Golden Bulls leave North Carolina the next three weeks for games at Benedict and Virginia Union. The Benedict game on Sept. 14 at Charlie W. Johnson Stadium in Columbia, South Carolina, is a nonconference date against the SIAC program. The Sept. 21 contest at Virginia Union’s Hovey Field in Richmond is a rematch of last year’s season finale against the Panthers, who finished second in the CIAA North.

The Golden Bulls go to Virginia State Sept. 28, followed by a home date against Lincoln (Pa.) on October 5.

CIAA South Division play opens on October 12 against Winston-Salem State, which hasn’t lost to the Golden Bulls since 1996, followed by home games against Fayetteville State (Oct. 19) and homecoming against Shaw on Oct. 26.

Road trips close the schedule: Nov. 2 at Saint Augustine’s in Raleigh, followed by the Commemorative Classic against Livingstone Nov. 9 in Salisbury.
