Georgia State PanthersThe Georgia State Panthers will host Charlotte in 2015 and have had discussions for games against two FBS schools, the AJC has reported.

Georgia State will host the Charlotte 49ers at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Sept. 3, 2015. The two schools are also discussing a game in 2016, but a contract has yet to be finalized.

Charlotte, which begins their football program in 2013, will officially announce tomorrow that they are joining Conference USA in all sports. The 49ers football team will likely have to play two years at the FCS level before they can move up to the FBS.

Georgia State has also had discussions for future games against the Florida Gators and the North Carolina Tar Heels. GSU was talking to Florida about a game in 2015, but the talks appear to have broken off.

The Panthers have talked with North Carolina about playing in Chapel Hill on Sept. 14 or Sept. 21, 2013, but there is no signed agreement yet for that contest.
