Mayville State, an NAIA program out of Maryland, released its 2019 football schedule and it includes a Sept. 21 game against Merrimack at Duane Stadium.

The Comets finished 1-9 last season.

The NAIA is a governing body similar to the NCAA, but on a smaller scale. NAIA programs do award athletic scholarships and according to ExactSports.com, a Division I NAIA program is comparable to a Division II NCAA program.

Merrimack’s current home dates include Mayville State (NAIA), Bryant (NEC), Presbyterian (Big South) and Franklin Pierce (NE10). The Warriors will be playing their first season as a member of Division I FCS this fall.
