Paladins face tough early slate in 2016

(STATS) -- Hopefully, it will be a September to remember at Furman for all the right reasons.

The Paladins have an unforgiving month to start to their 2016 season, opening with Big Ten champion and College Football Playoff semifinalist Michigan State in East Lansing on Friday, Sept. 2. Given the Spartans are all but certain to be in the preseason AP Top 25 later this summer, they would be the third ranked FBS team Furman has faced under coach Bruce Fowler, who enters his sixth season.

"I think it's great. I had the opportunity to coach in the SEC for nine seasons and being in that environment and atmosphere is different in those stadiums," said Fowler, whose team split two games against FBS teams last season, stunning UCF 16-15 on the road en route to a 4-7 finish. "When guys are being recruited, they look at schedules, they look at who you play and it attracts competitors."
