As part of a three-game series scheduled to begin in 2011, North Carolina State will travel to Mount Pleasant to play CMU on Aug. 28, 2014 at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The game will be CMU's season opener.
"This is a chance for them to come to our place on a Thursday night," said CMU Athletics Director Dave Heeke. "We're trying to build scheduling that can bring some of those (teams) into Kelly/Shorts. It can be challenging at times with the success we've had and the revenue component that is required to pay those teams to come here."
CMU and North Carolina State entered into a three-game series in January 2009 that will require the Chippewas to travel to Raleigh, N.C., for games on Oct. 8, 2011. and Sept. 14, 2013.
