ARKADELPHIA — Henderson State has released its 2022 football schedule, allowing fans the opportunity to follow the Reddies as they challenge for a Great American Conference title this fall.


The Reddies, who posted back-to-back nine-win seasons in 2019 and 2021, will play six games inside the home confines of Carpenter-Haygood Stadium this year and five on the road in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

HSU opens the 2022 campaign at home when it faces Southwestern Oklahoma State at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1 in the first-ever contest on the brand-new GeoSurfaces Field. The Reddies return on Saturday, Sept. 17 for Family Day and will host in-state foe Arkansas-Monticello at 6 p.m.
