PENSACOLA, Fla.– The UWF Football team will play five home games and four teams that participated in the NCAA Playoffs as part of the 2019 schedule that was announced on Wednesday.
For the second-consecutive season, the Argonauts will open against Carson-Newman. This year’s edition will be on Thursday, Sept. 5 in Jefferson City, Tenn. The game will mark the second-ever Thursday contest for the fourth-year program.
UWF will open Gulf South Conference action a week later on Sept. 14 against Shorter in Rome, Ga.
The Argonauts will begin play at Blue Wahoos Stadium on Sept. 21, kicking off a 3-game homestand against Virginia-Lynchburg. The following two weeks will see Mississippi College and Delta State come to the Gulf Coast. The school will celebrate Homecoming against the Statesmen on Oct. 5.

The Fourth Annual Coastal Classic will take center stage on Oct. 26 when UWF returns to the Space Coast to face Florida Tech. The Argonauts won the first two games by a combined five points, including a thrilling 23-21 result in 2017 that provided the most amazing comeback in program history.
