The Georgia State Panthers have added the Savannah State Tigers to their 2020 football schedule, GSU announced on Wednesday.
News of the matchup was first reported Wednesday morning by Doug Roberson of the AJC.
Georgia State will host Savannah State at their new stadium in Atlanta, formerly Turner Field, on Sept. 19, 2020. In their first and only meeting, Georgia State defeated Savannah State 55-21 at home in 2010.
Savannah State is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) in the Football Championship Subdivision. Since 2010, the Tigers haven’t won more than one game per season and are 5-62 overall.
