**Dates above not confirmed by the University of San Francisco. But confirmed through other teams or the WCC Conference.

In early July, I wrote an article predicting the Dons schedule this season. I am still hoping for a grand opening night game and searching for that “big” team on the schedule. Also, it would not be out of the ordinary for the Dons to schedule another non-conference game after WCC play begins and/or after the WCC Tournament in March. I do not believe that the Dons will participate in an away multi-team event . However, the “Battle in the Bay” has the potential to be a very big multi-team event during the Thanksgiving holiday. Lastly, I was hoping the Dons would find another game on the East coast prior to the St. John’s game to make the East Coast trip worth while. No signs point to a second game on the East Coast.
