BEMIDJI -- Fresh off the best season in program history, the Bemidji State football team now has the follow-up tour mapped out.

The Beavers released their 2022 schedule on Monday, which includes five home games and a road rematch against an NCAA Tournament opponent.

BSU begins the season at home, kicking off with Minnesota State at 6 p.m. on Sept. 1 at Chet Anderson Stadium. Then comes a road matchup at Augustana on Sept. 10, a rematch of last season’s NCAA Tournament debut for Bemidji State -- a game the Beavers won 28-24.

Homecoming week follows against Winona State on Sept. 17, while road tests at Upper Iowa (Sept. 24) and Minot State (Oct. 1) come next.

BSU will host Concordia-St. Paul on Oct. 8 and battle for the Axe at Minnesota State Moorhead on Oct. 15.
