If Stephen F. Austin football fans thought the 2020 season was strange, they’ll find the Lumberjacks’ 2021 schedule more of an intrigue, as head coach Colby Carthel and the university announced its ‘21 slate on Thursday, which includes 11 games, including five at Homer Bryce Stadium.

The ’Jacks, who proclaimed themselves the “Southland Conference Champions” after winning their only league matchup against Abilene Christian, 35-32, in an emotion-filled contest at Globe Life Park last fall, will enter into a unique two-tier slate this fall after coming off a 6-4 campaign.
