Charleston Southern Buccaneers Football Tickets
The Charleston Southern Buccaneers began its football program in 1989 as the new kids on the block. After two years as a Division 3 team, the team suddenly had to start playing as a Division 1 team instead. This was due to rule changes from the NCAA that stated that all athletic programs of a school had to be in the same division. This pitted the team against more established programs. The Buccaneers struggled but persevered, and it finally posted a winning season in 2004. The team reached new heights under Coach Jamey Chadwell and achieved 10 wins in one season that included a triumph over Appalachian State in 2013. The Buccaneers won national conference titles in 2015 (vacated) and 2016, beat The Citadel four times in a row and beat Coastal Carolina twice. Today, Charleston Southern has been consistently in the FCS top 25 rankings since 2013. Jamey Chadwell left in 2017, and Mark Tucker took over. After a tough two seasons, Tucker resigned in 2018. The new head coach, Autry Denson, is steering the Buccaneers for the 2019 season. Grab your Charleston Southern Buccaneers football tickets at StubHub.
