HIALEAH, FL. - ASA College-Miami released their 2017 Football Schedule on Wednesday. The Silver Storm will take on three teams who finished last season ranked in the top 20 of the 2016 NJCAA Football Rankings.

The first notable matchup of the season is on September 2nd against fellow independent foe, Erie Community College. That game will be played at Virginia State University in Petersburg, VA.
Lackawanna College, the reigning North East Football conference champions finished as the 8th ranked team in the country in 2016. That game will be played on September 17th at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina.
