Tarleton Football has added a road game at Bethune-Cookman to its 2020 schedule, giving the Texans another NCAA Division I opponent.
The Texans will travel to Daytona, Florida to take on the Wildcats on October 31 at a time yet to be determined. Bethune-Cookman, who went 7-4 last season, is in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, an FCS competing conference.
The game takes the place of NCAA Division II Western Oregon, who the Texans were set to host on the same day.
Tarleton still has 11 games in its first year transitioning to an NCAA Division I university, which the football team will compete as an independent. The Texans will have six home games and five road games. Of the 11 games, seven are against Division I programs, which is more than the 50-percent minimum requirement of a first-year transitioning program.
All home games are scheduled for 6 p.m. Road game times have not yet been set. All times are subject to change.
