South Alabama has officially sold out their game against Mississippi State on Saturday. Let me repeat that once more for you.

South Alabama vs Mississippi State is SOLD OUT.

The South Alabama Athletic Ticket Office sold out the final 300 general admission tickets before lunch on Tuesday. This marks the first sell-out in the Jaguars five-plus seasons of football. The largest crowd the Jaguars had previously was their debut against Hargrave Military Academy on September 5, 2009 which was recorded as 26,783. With over 38,000 tickets sold, this is surely to eclipse that total.

This will also mark the first time a Southeaster Conference school has played at Ladd-Peebles Stadium since the fall of 1968.

South Alabama and Mississippi State will kick off at 3pm on Saturday. The game will be telecast on ESPNews and radio coverage will be on Lite Mix 99.9FM beginning at 2PM.
