Savannah State Releases 2014 Football Schedule


SAVANNAH, Ga.- Savannah State University director of athletics Sterling Steward, Jr. and head football coach Earnest Wilson III have announced the Tigers 2014 football schedule. Highlighting the 12-game slate are three games against FBS opponents and five home games.


SSU will play eight Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference games in addition to games against teams from Conference USA, The Sun Belt, Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and one Independent.


The Tigers will kick-off the season against a pair of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams. SSU will travel to Conference USA member Middle Tennessee State University on August 30 and Sun Belt Conference newcomer Georgia Southern University on September 6.

Norfolk State University will visit the Tigers on October 4 for SSU's 2014 Homecoming. That contest will be followed by a road game at Florida A&M University (Oct. 11).
