Texas Southern announces 2024 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Texas Southern Tigers have announced their 2024 football schedule, which features five home games and 11 contests total.

Texas Southern opens the 2024 season on Saturday, Aug. 31 with a Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) contest on the road against the Prairie View A&M Panthers.

The following week on Sept. 7, Texas Southern steps out of conference and makes an in-town trek to visit the Rice Owls at Rice Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Tigers then enjoy an open date on Sept. 14 before returning to the road for a non-conference, in-state visit to face the Lamar Cardinals in Beaumont, Texas, on Sept. 21.

Texas Southern returns to SWAC action on Sept. 28 when they welcome the Jackson State Tigers for their home-opener at Shell Energy Stadium in Houston. The following week on Oct. 5, the Tigers play host to the Virginia-Lynchburg Dragons for Homecoming.

The remainder of Texas Southern’s 2024 football schedule is all SWAC opponents, beginning with Southern at home on Oct. 12 before a second open date on Oct. 19. The Tigers then host Grambling State on Oct. 26 before making consecutive road trips to battle Florida A&M on Nov. 2 and Alcorn State on Nov. 9.

Bethune-Cookman will be TSU’s final home opponent of the season on Nov. 16 before the Tigers conclude their slate at Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Nov. 23.
