Cumberland director of athletics Ron Pavan announced an addition to the Phoenix football schedule this week, with CU taking on NCAA FCS member Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Sept. 8.

The Phoenix and Lions will play at Golden Lions Stadium in Pine Bluff, Ark. UAPB is a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) in FCS. Cumberland lost 24-17 to FCS member Presbyterian College last season. The addition to the schedule gives CU 11 contests for the 2018 season.

Cumberland will open the 2018 campaign at Bluefield College on Aug. 25 and play its home opener Sept. 1 versus Union College before heading to UAPB.
