Georgia Southern to host UNH in 2017, Presbyterian in 2018

By Kevin Kelley -

The Georgia Southern Eagles have added the New Hampshire Wildcats and the Presbyterian Blue Hose to their future football schedules, Director of Athletics Tom Kleinlein announced Thursday.

Georgia Southern will host New Hampshire at Paulson Stadium in Statesboro on Sept. 9, 2017. The Eagles and the Wildcats’ first and only meeting came back in 2004 in the first round of the D-IAA playoffs. UNH won that game 27-23 in Statesboro.

The Eagles will host the Presbyterian Blue Hose in Statesboro on Sept. 1, 2018. Georgia Southern won the last meeting 48-14 in 2011 to extend their lead in the series to 3-0.

The addition of New Hampshire and Presbyterian completes Georgia Southern’s non-conference football schedule through the 2018 season.

Looks like the Eagles are setting up double digit win seasons for years to come! Hail Southern! GATA!

They could go undefeated if they scheduled all high school teams! This lines up a great seeding in the FCS playoffs!

Auburn and Clemson are not High Schools Matt butt they will lose both of those and since they are FBS the FCS playoffs don’t mean much for the Eagles. Have you watched college football in the last 2 years?

Matt, nearly every FBS team plays a FCS team each year. It counts towards the 6 needed wins for bowl eligibility. As a FBS team, you would be pretty dumb not to schedule a FCS game each year…at least until it no longer counts towards bowl eligibility. Hail Southern and NO place else!
