TROY, Ala. -- Troy announced Monday that it had reached an agreement to play a two-game series with North Carolina State.
Troy will open the 2015 season at North Carolina State on Sept. 5.
The Wolfpack will play at Troy in the 2017 season on Sept. 23.
"Anytime we can get an AQ opponent to come to Troy, and to do so in a home-and-home series, it's a tremendous get for us," TRoy athletic director John Hartwell said. "It will be an opportunity to showcase not just our football program, but also our facilities, our University and the city of Troy. We're not scheduling to just say that we played them; it's one that we think we have a legitimate shot of not only competing, but also winning one or both of those games.
"This also makes it easier for future scheduling as we can tell other schools that Mississippi State, Navy, Duke, NC State and Boise State have all been in here in a seven-year window."
