Gameday: South Alabama vs Western Kentucky
The Jags return home to host conference foe Western Kentucky today at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30pm.
Both teams come into the game with a 1-1 record. The Jags lost in their season opener against Southern Utah then bounced back against Tulane in the Superdome in New Orleans last week.
Western Kentucky won their season opener against Kentucky then travel led to Knoxville and fell 52-20. They initially went up 3-0 over the Vols, but 31 unanswered points put the Vols on top for good.
This is the first game between the two schools and the last in the foreseeable future as WKU will join Conference USA next summer.
Fans are encouraged to wear RED for the game and the first 10,000 fans will get red Jaguar rally towels. Gates open at 4:30pm.
The Jaguar Prowl is scheduled for 4:20pm at the south side of the stadium in front of the National Alumni tent. The team will walk from the east side of the stadium to the West player entrance at Gate 3W.
Parking is limited at the Stadium and is not available for single-game tickets. Private parking options are available near the stadium, but it is not controlled nor managed by South Alabama or Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The Wave will run from Bel Air Mall in the south parking lot near Target and JC Penny to the Stadium beginning at 2:30pm and will run until 90 minutes after the game is over. A round trip costs $2.50.
We need fans to be LOUD and we need STUDENTS to fill the stadium. View my challenge to Jaguar Nation earlier this week for more.
