Coming off a record-breaking season on the field and in the stands, the 2023 Troy Football season will be can’t-miss action in Veterans Memorial Stadium. In preparation for an exciting home schedule, Troy Athletics announced Wednesday the game themes for the Trojans’ six home games this fall.

The home slate is loaded with big games featuring the “Battle for the Belt” against South Alabama, Sun Belt East Division favorite James Madison, old Sun Belt rival Western Kentucky, Sun Belt West foes Louisiana and Arkansas State, plus a non-conference visit from Stephen F. Austin.

“The Vet has become one of the best fan environments in the Group of Five and a place that visiting teams dread coming to because of our tremendous fans,” Director of Athletics Brent Jones said. “It is our top priority every year to continue to enhance the gameday experience and provide our fans with an unforgettable visit every time they come on campus for an athletics event.”
