Griffs’ Las Vegas Classic games released

By Nick Veronica

Canisius’ opponents for the Las Vegas Classic were revealed Friday: Penn State, Kent State and Louisiana-Monroe.

IAGS confirmed last month that the Griffs would be playing in the December event.

Each team in the Classic plays four games, with two at campus sites and two at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. The Griffs will be on the road for both games played at campus sites, as was expected. Here are Canisius’ games:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 10 at Penn State, time TBD
  • Saturday, Dec. 12 at Kent State, time TBD
  • Tuesday, Dec. 22 vs. Louisiana-Monroe at Orleans Arena, Las Vegas, 5:30 p.m. ET
  • Wednesday, Dec. 23 vs. Hampton or Nicholls State at Orleans Arena, Las Vegas, time TBD

SMU and Colorado round out the eight-team field. Fox Sports 1 will air the championship and third-place games, but with Canisius’ final opponent already known to be either Hampton or Nicholls State, it would appear the Griffs can’t qualify for the championship.

Canisius’ full schedule will be released in the next few weeks.
