2012 Schedule Released

2012 Lake Forest College Football Schedule

The Lake Forest College Athletic Department released the 2012 Forester Football Schedule on Tuesday. The Foresters will face a balanced schedule of 5 home and 5 away games in 2012. With the addition of Cornell College to the Midwest Conference, the Foresters will have one non-conference game (Concordia University) and will face nine of the other 10 Midwest Conference games. For the first time since , the Foresters will not face MWC opponent Beloit College, whom the Foresters defeated 27-17 in 2011. This will be the first fall since 1976 that the Buccaneers and the Foresters have not faced each other on the grid-iron.

"I am very pleased with our schedule. I like the balance in the schedule and the addition of a bye week. I think that we will have an advantage in our bye week planning since we had a similar situation at the end of the season this year," commented Coach Catanzaro.

The Foresters kickoff the 2012 season on the road at Concordia University on September 1st, and return to Farwell Field against Lawrence University to start MWC play on September 8th.
