- VMI Football season is set to begin with a game against Davidson
- Head coach Danny Rocco's impressive coaching resume
- Davidson enters the game after three consecutive FCS Playoff appearances
The 2023 VMI Football season kicks off with a game against the Davidson Wildcats. Danny Rocco is the new head coach for the Keydets and brings a decorated coaching background to the team. Davidson enters the season on a high note with three consecutive FCS Playoff appearances. The Wildcats have a unique offense featuring the option and two tight ends. VMI holds the edge in the all-time series between the two teams. Grant Swinehart is the captain of the special teams, and Chance Knox is a key target for VMI quarterbacks. The Keydet defense, led by Alex Oliver, should be strong.
