Towson released its 2010 schedule, which includes a Sept. 2 season opener at Indiana. It's the third straight season the Tigers will open their season against an NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision team, having faced Navy in 2008 and Northwestern last season. With the Football Championship Subdivision Colonial Athletic Association now a 10-team league, each school will play eight league games. Because Northeastern and Hofstra discontinued their football programs, the CAA eliminated divisional play for 2010. Each CAA school will play all but one CAA opponent. The Tigers will not play William & Mary in 2010.
