Dayton Flyers coach Anthony Grant will reunite with former college teammate Damon Goodwin, the longtime head coach at Capital University, in an exhibition game Nov. 2 at UD Arena.
Dayton released its non-conference schedule Tuesday. The game against Capital likely will be the first time fans can see the Flyers in action. For the second straight year, the status of the Red and Blue Game is up in the air because of the renovations at UD Arena.
Grant and Goodwin played three seasons together with the Flyers in the 1980s with head coach Don Donoher.
