FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – As part of the ASUN Conference and Western Athletic Conference (WAC) partnership, the University of North Alabama has released the conference portion of its 2023 football schedule.

The ASUN-WAC partnership will function in the manner of a single sport conference beginning January 1, 2023. The 2023 schedule, based on existing commitments, will be limited to six conference games.
