MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – The South Alabama Jaguars Football team announced Thursday that they will play a SEC powerhouse in the coming years.
The Jags will face off with the Florida Gators in the 2020 season. The match-up, which will be played in Gainesville, Fla., completes a revised 2020 out-of-conference schedule for the Jags.
The Florida match-up replaces a game with Oklahoma State. The Jags have a three game contract with the Cowboys that will run through 2023.
The Sun Belt Conference schedule for 2020 has not yet been released, but the Jags out-of-conference schedule is out:
- Sept. 5, 2020: South Alabama at Southern Miss
- Sept. 12, 2020: Grambling at South Alabama
- Sept. 19, 2020: South Alabama at Florida
- Sept. 26. 2020: University of Alabama-Birmingham (UAB) at South Alabama
South Alabama has been successful in the past in their match-ups with SEC teams. Last season, the Jags got their first win over a SEC team when they beat Mississippi State 21-20 in Starkville, Miss. The Jags also played a close game against the Tennessee Volunteers in 2013 that went to overtime in Knoxville, Tenn.
