The South Alabama Jaguars have completed their 2016 and 2017 non-conference football schedules, USA Director of Athletics Dr. Joel Erdmann announced today.
South Alabama completed their schedules by adding home games against Nicholls State for Sept. 24, 2016 and Alabama A&M for Sept. 16, 2017.
The Jaguars have faced Nicholls State twice previously, winning 39-21 in 2010 and 9-3 in 2012. The 2017 matchup with Alabama A&M will be their first on the gridiron.
South Alabama opens the 2016 season at Mississippi State on Sept. 3 and then hosts UAB at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile on Sept. 10. After hosting Nicholls State on Sept. 24, South Alabama later travels to face LSU on Oct. 15.
The 2017 season for the Jags begins with a trip to face Ole Miss on Sept. 2. South Alabama then hosts back-to-back games against Oklahoma State on Sept. 9 and Alabama A&M on Sept. 16. USA’s final non-conference game in 2017 is slated for Sept. 30 at Louisiana Tech.

You mean that South Alabama did not schedule a game with the Crimson Tide? I thought the Tide were wanting to upgrade their future football schedule.
more like down grade
@Michael… LSU already has dibs on the Jaguars for 2016. Alabama will probably schedule ULL, NM St, or TexasSt. Or maybe a repeat game with ULM which appears to enjoy getting paid for multiple beatdowns each season.
Alabama and Auburn would never willingly schedule South Alabama. Get real.
Or Troy. Or UAB. However, Auburn has played Samford frequently through the years. Go figure!
Alabama had rather play Western Carolina and Chattanooga than keep their money in-state by play South Alabama or Troy. UAB need apply.
