Georgia Southern Eagles Football Tickets
Georgia Southern was one of the best teams in Division IAA when it existed and has moved to the FBS. The team was built around a strong defense, a great running game, a quarterback who could control the game with his legs, and innovative coaching. Erk Russel brought the program back after an extensive break from action leaving his position as defensive coordinator at UGA to become the head coach at Georgia Southern. Now that the Eagles have moved up to Division I, they are recruiting better athletes and football players, and they are an exciting team to watch. You do not want to miss their marquee matchups in 2019 against both LSU and and Minnesota from the SEC and Big 10 because they might just pull an upset.

What are some of the best games that Georgia Southern will play in 2019?
Georgia Southern will play their traditional Sun Belt Conference schedule against schools like Georgia State and Louisiana Lafayette. These games are usually highly contested and really good football games. But in 2019, the Eagles will play one team each from the SEC and Big 10, and this is where they could really gain some national notoriety. They will play at Minnesota and at LSU, and a win in either game would be great for the future of the program.
