The Minutemen will also resume playing at McGuirk Stadium. UMass hasn’t played at its campus stadium, which has been undergoing renovations, since 2011.Three of the Mintuemen’s league contests will be at McGuirk, including Homecoming, which is set for Sept. 27 vs. Bowling Green.


When UMass faces Ball State on Nov. 12 at McGuirk Stadium, it will be the Minutemen’s first nationally televised game since 2007. The game will air on ESPN2 or ESPNU.
