Tiffin, Ohio – May 4, 2010 – Heidelberg University head football coach Mike Hallett has announced the release of the 2010 schedule. The schedule is highlighted by five home contests that will be played on Heidelberg’s campus at Mayer Field, as well as three broadcasts on SportsTime Ohio.
Heidelberg opens the year at Alma College for a non-conference game Sept. 4. Alma is a member of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and finished its 2009 campaign at 5-5. When the Berg and Alma square off it will not only mark the season openers for both sides, but will be the first contest on the gridiron between the two institutions.
Following a bye week, the Berg returns to Tiffin for two straight at home beginning with Baldwin-Wallace College Sept. 18. Its contest with the Yellow Jackets marks the Ohio Athletic Conference opener and Fellows’ Weekend at the Berg. The game will also be broadcast on tape delay on SportsTime Ohio. Rounding out the two-game home stretch is Otterbein College Sept. 25.
Heidelberg’s remaining eight games alternate between road and home outings. October opens with a road trip to Capital University Oct. 2 followed by hosting Muskingum University Oct. 9 for homecoming.
On Oct. 16 the Berg travels to Alliance, Ohio to face OAC champion Mount Union College in a contest that will be featured on SportsTime Ohio as well.
