Great News!!! #WeAreBC
If I remember, that 1986 game was AT Holy Cross as well.
You have to be 40+ years old to remember this rivalry. The sentiment is no longer there for FBS vs FCS.
BC vs Holy Cross in modern memory best remembered for the Flutie Brothers games in the early 80s. This may be one of the only fbs vs fcs matches that makes sense from a historical view.
BC and holy cross that is old school…lol
86 game thanksgiving weekend. Likely last major conference school to play at a 1AA school not counting navy and army . BC 56 28

So you don’t count the 2014 Sun Belt teams (Troy, ULM, App State, and Idaho) as FBS teams since you say Western Michigan will be the first to play at Paulson Stadium?
It should read first non-conference FBS team…
the answer should be…..’no, Sun Belt teams don’t count as real FBS teams’
first Non conference FBS team to play at Paulson.. read what it says
He was correct, the article was edited.
Obviously WMU is the 1st Non-Con FBS team. Jeesh
very solid program I wouldn’t be surprised if they contend for the sun belt title in year one
Duquesne would have given the Eagles a better game than Sav. St.
Does the University of Florida count as an FBS team??………
GA Southern 26 Florida 20
I’m so excited and yes they should bill
Anyone know what weekend Homecoming 2014 will be?
With the five home games and the two Atlanta games it should make for a lot of football access for Southern fans this first year!

as an APP supporter, excited to start seeing both our and the Eagles 1st FBS schedules come together.
Same here as a GSU fan. Glad to have the App St. rivalry live on!
Pretty sure y’all will play annually when the SBC splits into divisions.
Well GaSo, Here is the first of many losing seasons to come. No matter how high you try to pull up those britches, your never gonna be ready for big boy pants!
Big boy football = Lambuth. The good news about ga state being so bad is no one actually comes to the games to see it.
Says a fan of the team who has had as many losing seasons in the last 2 years as Georgia Southern has had in it’s modern history.
Envy is a powerful emotion. Good luck with it.
Are you sayin’ I’m jealous?
Mah eyes are watchin’ you like a hawk!
hahaha hey GaState should put together a 4 win season before talking this much sh t.
6 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!!!!!!! NUFF SAID!!!!!!!!
OK Gene? Does anyone at FBS care about FCS titles done years ago? Or even last year? NO
There still will be no doubt who the real GSU is and that is Georgia Southern University!
I just hope they do OK. I think they will be at the middle of the conference, it is the Sun Belt (SEC Junior).
No matter if you are undefeated, you’ll end up in a no-name bowl and ultimately win nothing of any significance. That goes for Southern & State. You’re gonna be envied about as much as memphis and Southern Miss.
I have our first year going 8-4. 6-2 in the conference, losses to Tech and NC State, and wins against Duquesne and Navy.
dirty birds is nuts if he thinks the eagles are knocking off Navy. The middies are gonna know your offense well enough to shut it down for long enough to win. they play against the same offense, with better players, everyday in practice. also, they compete with teams like notre dame, air force, pitt, and bc on a regular basis that can run the ball effectively (ok, bc not so much recently) and that play hard nosed defense. I’m glad to see they’re taking on a tough schedule – you only get better by playing better competition. They’re gonna see better competition right off the bat.
Don’t even compare Georgia State and Southern. Georgia State has an all time record of 10-23. Georgia Southern has an all time record of 275-101-1 with 6
National Championships. App St and Southern are already the best two teams in the Sun Belt. The only team that will be able to compete with them is Arkansas State. Mark my words, starting 2014, the winner of the Sun Belt will be either App St or Georgia Southern for a long time.
Ok, that’s just ridiculous. The comment about “big boy pants” above is just as ridiculous, in the other direction. Western Kentucky played almost even ball at Alabama for 3 quarters before the tide took control. Middle Tennessee has 4 – 8+ win seasons in the past 6 years. At least you gave Arkansas State some credit. App State & GeoSou are solid programs, but they’re gonna have their work cut out for them. On the other hand, the fool with the big boy pants comment isn’t informed enough to realize that Boise State, Marshall, and Nevada all played in bowl games in their first eligible season.
“Evidently you didn’t hear last year the ULM beat Arkansas and almost Auburn, or that WKU beat Kentucky, or that the Cajuns have won back to back bowl games.”
Quit saying Georgia state. It’s Georgia southern. Georgia state sucks terribly
To all Georgia Southern Fans, rise above the haters and focus on supporting the school. Ga Southern is an awesome school with an awesome football program, and this is the first step toward greatness. Go Eagles!
the jealousy and envy of georgia southern is notible considering the eagles will be taking your breath away, let us not forget alot of these teams georgia southern will play have been beaten by georgia southern. know this the eagles are going to wear down the best opponents and will be leaving your bones frail and feeling like fire. Eagles practice in hot and intense conditions. These guys are already men, men of honor, men of steel, and you others well the men at georgia southern are a special opps team. Trust me you will have alot to worry about georgia southern is not just worried about winning , they get after youre azz GATA this is serious to georgia southern while humble be sure to know Geeorgia southern adds more players more eagles from the south. this aint no panzy azz arguement. Eagle creek truly runs deep when they hit they hit. When your crowd says ooh !!!! AWWW youve been hit by an eagle. These guys are trained well , while old school fundementals are in place . they are head hunters. soilders of honor, and victims of peoples un- knowledge of tradition. you have alot to worry about. Georgia southern will move in and take over your lands like navy seals. and appalachin state is the same we rival but missions stay the same , get ready for some azz whippins your mamma will have to nuture for you. GATA we take it seriously
That’s poetic. Swampman sings the Gospel truth. Hail Southern…and NO place else!
there is plenty of talent here in south Georgia time will tell
You folks will enjoy ‘bigtime’ football In time Ga state will be good. They are only in their 4th year of football. Be patient children. Barry/ Ark State Alum in Atlanta.
