Gameday: South Alabama Versus UTSA

September 1, 2012 · By · Filed Under Football 

It’s finally here. That day we have been waiting for since the final whistle sounded back on November 19, 2011.

This season the South Alabama Jaguars begin their second and final season of their transition into FBS football. A season where they will be tested week-in and week-out. They will play 13 games in 14 weeks, eight games will be against Sun Belt Conference foes. They will also face their first team from the Southeastern Conference.

But it all begins here. The Jags welcome Texas-San Antonio who they defeated in double-overtime last season 30-27 in the Alamodome. The Jags finished the season 6-4 while the Roadrunners finished 4-6, dropping all four games on the road.

At 8:00am the gates to Ladd-Peebles Stadium will open for tailgating. Between 10:30 and 10:45 the Jaguars will arrive at the stadium and will have their traditional “Jaguar Prowl”. Gates open to the stadium at 11:00am and kickoff is scheduled for 1:00pm.

If you are not able to make it to the stadium, ESPN3 will be streaming the game live online. Check with your Cable/Internet provider if you have access.

Go Jags! Defeat those Roadrunners!

Also a table will be set up at Gate 4 for donations to help former Jaguar Jordan Means with his cancer treatment. Jordan, who graduated last year, had to sit out the 2009 season but participated in the 2010 and 2011 seasons. Go by and help Jordan Kick Cancer.
