Southern Jaguars announce 2022 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Southern Jaguars have announced their 2022 football schedule, which features a game at the LSU Tigers.

Southern opens their 2022 schedule on Saturday, Sept. 3 at home at Ace W. Mumford Stadium in Baton Rouge, La., against the Florida Memorial Lions. The Jaguars then make the short 10-mile trip to take on LSU on Sept. 10.

Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) action begins on Sept. 17 when the Jaguars square off with Texas Southern in the Arlington Football Showdown at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.

After an open date, Southern returns to Baton Rouge to host Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Oct. 1 before traveling to face Prairie View A&M on Oct. 8.

Back-to-back home games at Ace W. Mumford Stadium are next as Southern plays host to Alcorn State on Oct. 15 and Virginia-Lynchburg for Homecoming on Oct. 22. Southern then travels for consecutive contests on the road at Jackson State on Oct. 29 and at Florida A&M on Nov. 5.

Southern closes out the 2022 regular-season with a home game against Mississippi Valley State on Nov. 12 and, after an open date, the 49th Annual Bayou Classic against Grambling State at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, La., on Nov. 26.

I see the Jaguars going 5-6 with losses to LSU, Prairie Alcorn St., Jackson State, Florida A&M, and Grambling. Other than the LSU and Jackson State games, the loses will be close because of the defense.
