On Tuesday, Troy University Athletics announced a home-and-home series with the University of Buffalo that will see the two sides play in 2025 and 2027.

This series will replace a previously announced home-and-home series with UMass, who recently joined the Mid-American Conference beginning in the 2025 season. Troy will travel to play Buffalo on the road in 2025, while Buffalo will head to Troy for the 2027 matchup.

Troy and Buffalo have met just once in the two schools’ histories, the 2018 Dollar General Bowl in Mobile that saw the Trojans earn a 42-32 win.
