ANNVILLE, Pa. – The final previously to-be-determined kickoff time has been set and Lebanon Valley's 2015 football schedule is official.

The Flying Dutchmen host five games in the friendly confines of Arnold Field and will hit the road for their remaining five contests this fall. LVC's campaign gets underway on a Thursday under the lights and Homecoming is set for Oct. 10.

Lebanon Valley will host Franklin & Marshall in a first-in-the-nation Thursday night game to open the 2015 football season. The local rivals will play Sept. 3 with a 7 p.m. kickoff at Arnold Field in LVC's first-ever Thursday game. Sept. 3 is the first allowable date of competition for NCAA Division III teams in 2015.

The Dutchmen begin Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) play on the road the next week when they travel to Misericordia before returning home on Sept. 19 to host Stevenson. LVC closes out the month with a trip to Widener to face the defending conference champions on Sept. 26.

Lycoming pays a visit to Arnold Field on Oct. 3 and Lebanon Valley welcomes FDU-Florham for its annual Homecoming outing the next weekend. The team's week seven bye comes at an opportune time as the Dutchmen play their only back-to-back road games of the season in weeks eight and nine when they travel to Wilkes on Oct. 24 before closing out October at Delaware Valley on Halloween.

LVC opens November against King's (Pa.) on senior day in the team's 2015 home finale on Nov. 7 before closing out the regular season at Albright in the 95th meeting between the longtime rivals.
