Jags Scheduled To Travel To South Carolina In 2014

The 2014 SEC schedules were released today and there was a surprise for South Alabama fans. Originally the Jags were scheduled to play against the University of Georgia in Athens, but it seems a shuffling of schedules occured between the announcement of the game and the actual schedule being released.

Georgia’s schedule now has Troy going to Athens on September 13, 2014 and the Jags going to Columbia, South Carolina on November 22, 2014 to face the Gamecocks. Originally Troy was scheduled to play South Carolina. Some sort of scheduling problem must have occurred at the SEC office causing the shuffling of schedules but the Jags will still come out with an SEC opponent and presumably a hefty payday for travel.

In 2014, the Jags also play non-conference games at Kent State for their third and final game of their two-for-one contract, at home against Mississippi State for the second game of their two-for-one contract and also host Navy for the final game of their home-and-home series.

Fans who were planning on going to the Georgia game now have a longer commute if they want to see the Jags against another SEC foe, but the upside will be that South Carolina will not have Jadeveon Clowny on their roster then. Just as a reminder, look at the hit he put on Michigan in their bowl game in January: http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2013/1/1/3825442/jadeveon-clowney-dot-gif

In addition to yesterdays announcement of the 2009 Football schedule, the University of South Alabama announced a deal to play N.C. State three times in the coming years.

The contract has three games, two in Raleigh and one in Mobile. The Jags will visit North Carolina on September 17, 2011 and September 15, 2012. Then the Wolfpack will travel to Mobile for a September 5, 2015 matchup.

This announcement adds to the previous announcements of big games against Tennessee in Knoxville in 2013 and a four year, home-and-home series against the Navy Midshipmen.

Coach Jones was quoted saying, “The most important thing about the contracts we’ve signed is that it shows where the program is going and the vision that the administration has.”. He continued, “We know there are steps to get where we want to be, and we’re doing it as fast as any school in the country ever has.”

Go Jags!
