The University of Denver Pioneers have officially released their 2019 schedule and their opponents include everything from old rivals to new D1 additions.
The Pioneers will prepare for their season with an exhibition at the University of Delaware on Saturday, February 2nd. One week after facing off against the Blue Hens, Denver will return to Peter Barton for their home opener against the United States Air Force Academy.
The 2019 Faceoff Classic will be held at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium once again in 2019. This year’s event will bring Cleveland State and Utah, the two newest Division One programs, to Colorado for games against the Pioneers and the Air Force Falcons. The event will be held February 23-24.
Denver will once again face off against top teams across the country this year. However, many of these contests will be played away from home. The Pioneers will travel to Duke, North Carolina – Chapel Hill, and Ohio State throughout the year. They’ll also faceoff against Notre Dame in a game that will be played in Costa Mesa, California on March 9th.
The University of Denver will host the Big East Tournament for the second time in school history to end the season. The tournament will run from May 2nd to May 4th.
