(STATS) - UT Martin will open the 2018 season against a pair of FBS opponents and play five times at home as part of an 11-game schedule which was announced Monday.

The Skyhawks will open the season at Missouri on Sept. 1 and visit Middle Tennessee on Sept. 8.

A week later, the Skyhawks will play their home opener against Chattanooga on Sept. 15. Within the Ohio Valley Conference, they'll host Austin Peay (Sept. 22), Eastern Kentucky (Oct. 13), Southeast Missouri (Oct. 27) and Tennessee Tech (Nov. 10).

"This will be a challenging schedule week in and week out," said UT Martin coach Jason Simpson, whose team finished 6-5 last year.
