Georgetown College football Tigers have learned their 2017 schedule with the new divisional alignments fixed in the expanded Mid-South Conference. The team will face two new opponents this coming season. Winter weights have begun with students reporting back on campus this past week and spring practice looms large. The annual Orange & Black game is scheduled for April 20.

The No. 25 Tigers will host five games and hit the road for five with an open date still lingering as a potential added game. Georgetown starts the season at Faulkner University on Sept. 2. The team follows that up with home games against two new MSC affiliate members – Southeastern University and Point University.

GC then travels to Bluefield College, before opening Bluegrass Divisional play against Cumberland University at Toyota Stadium on Sept. 30. The Tigers travel to Bethel University on Oct. 7 and follow that with a mid-season open date. Then GC hosts Kentucky Christian University before meeting Campbellsville University and Lindsey Wilson College in road games.

The team wraps up regular season play with a home date against Cincinnati Christian University.

MSC is up to 20 teams through affiliate memberships.

Edward Waters College, Ave Maria University, Southeastern, Warner University, Webber International University, Point and St. Andrews University will join the mix that also added Cincinnati Christian this past fall.

The first five schools mentioned are paired with Faulkner to form the Sun Division. Georgetown will be in the Bluegrass with Bethel, Campbellsville, Cincinnati Christian, Cumberland, Kentucky Christian and Lindsey Wilson. The Appalachian Division is made up of Bluefield, University of the Cumberlands, University of Pikeville, Point, Reinhardt University, St. Andrews University and Union College.
