The contest was added to the Blue Demons slate to replace a previously scheduled game against Wyoming.
"At this late date I am not only excited but thankful that Florida Gulf Coast has been added to our schedule," Wainwright said. "The Eagles are an up-and-coming young program coming off a 27-6 season and will prove to be a great addition to our home schedule."
Florida Gulf Coast is in its first season as a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference and will return four starters and eight letterwinners including seven seniors from last year's 27-6 team that faced a predominately Division II schedule. The Eagles did play three games against NCAA Division I teams last year and were 0-3, losing at Drexel, Penn and Butler.
Along with DePaul, Florida Gulf Coast faces fellow BIG EAST member Marquette, Iowa, Arizona State and Drexel during the 2007-08 season.
DePaul opens the 2007-08 campaign on November 9 at Creighton. The home opener is slated for November 17 against Northwestern at the Allstate Arena.
