“I’d be remiss not to say that we already have a plan for what’s coming this year,” said Blinn head coach Ryan Mahon, who is entering his seventh season with the Bucs. “We’re already deep into our preparation for each opponent, how we’re going to attack things week to week, and that brings some excitement to the program for the next few months.”
Blinn will play a nine-game schedule this fall which includes six home games. Seven of those contests will be Southwest Junior College Football Conference matchups.
Blinn will play all six of its home games at Cub Stadium, located at 1600 E. Tom Green St. in Brenham.
