The Georgia Southern Eagles have added the New Hampshire Wildcats and the Presbyterian Blue Hose to their future football schedules, Director of Athletics Tom Kleinlein announced Thursday.
Georgia Southern will host New Hampshire at Paulson Stadium in Statesboro on Sept. 9, 2017. The Eagles and the Wildcats’ first and only meeting came back in 2004 in the first round of the D-IAA playoffs. UNH won that game 27-23 in Statesboro.
The Eagles will host the Presbyterian Blue Hose in Statesboro on Sept. 1, 2018. Georgia Southern won the last meeting 48-14 in 2011 to extend their lead in the series to 3-0.
The addition of New Hampshire and Presbyterian completes Georgia Southern’s non-conference football schedule through the 2018 season.
