In addition to its annual football games against its Service Academy rivals, Army will be facing another option-based team a few years from now.

Last week, the Black Knights agreed to a home-and-home series with Georgia Southern for 2030 and 2031. The first game will be played Oct. 5, 2030 in Statesboro, Georgia and the second will be Nov. 8, 2031 at West Point, according to FBS Schedules.

Army and Georgia Southern of course have a bit of shared history, as Black Knights head coach Jeff Monken coached the Eagles from 2010 through 2013, leading them to a pair of SoCon championships when they were still playing FCS ball.

This past season, Army hosted and beat Georgia Southern 28-27 at Michie Stadium. That marked the first-ever meeting in football between the two teams.

In 2030 and 2031, Army also has a home-and-home agreement with Troy, hosting the Trojans in the first year of the deal and visiting them in the next. On the 2031 schedule, Army also has games scheduled against Cincinnati and UTSA.
