Northwestern will be the second NCAA BCS program that the Tigers have ever played. In 2008, Towson opened its season with a loss at Navy. The Wildcats, who have 14 starters returning, posted a 9-4 record last season and played in the Valero Alamo Bowl.

Two weeks after their season opener at Northwestern, the Tigers will open their home schedule when they face Coastal Carolina at Johnny Unitas® Stadium on Saturday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m. The Tigers’ matchup with Coastal Carolina is their only night game of the 2009 season.

Towson closes out the regular season on Saturday, November 21 at James Madison University. Kickoff is set for 3:00 p.m. The Dukes, who were the top-ranked team in NCAA FCS at the end of last year, compiled a 12-2 record in 2008 and reached the semi-finals of the NCAA FCS Playoffs.
