The Southern Jaguars have announced their fall 2021 football schedule, which includes five home contests.

Southern will open the 2021 season on the road against the Troy Trojans on Saturday, Sept. 4. The following week on Sept. 11, the Jaguars open their home slate against Miles College in the Pete Richardson Classic at Ace W. Mumford Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.
