The “Mardi Gras Bowl” between these 2 should be played every year. Mardi Gras originated in Mobile and some would say perfected in New Orleans. This is a made for ESPNU tradition..
Re-positioning schedules for 2019? Slimming from 4 OOC games to 3 OOC games? Very interesting. It’s as if they’re preparing to enter a conference that has 9 conference games that year and after. Second round of XII expansion to 14?
MAC and Sun Belt games are normally good
South Alabama would be a great fit for the ACC!
Not a bad slate for the Jags
South Alabama is a shining example of how UAB would have built a program if another certain school didn’t control the board… Very impressive how USA has gotten P5 schools like Ok State and NC State to play in Mobile. Definitely a program C-USA should have on their ‘next promotion’ list.
Actually I would rather see South Bama enter the American Conference where the hopes of UAB was aimed (back then Big East).
USA actually talked to the Big East shortly before the big split was announced.
