Tech, Georgia Southern Schedule 2015 Football Date

May 1, 2009

ATLANTA — Georgia Tech will play Georgia Southern in football for the first time ever in 2015, Yellow Jacket athletic director Dan Radakovich announced today.

The Yellow Jackets and Eagles, who have no previous meetings in football, have agreed to an early September date in Atlanta. Terms of the one-game contract will be determined at a later date.

Georgia Southern has been one of the nation’s most successful and tradition-rich Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) teams. Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson coached the Eagles for five years, including I-AA national championships in 1999 and 2000. He also spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Georgia Southern.

“Georgia Southern is a special place to me,” Johnson said. “I lived in Statesboro for nine years and we were fortunate to have a great deal of success there.

“Playing Georgia Southern makes perfect sense. They are a high-quality opponent and there will be a tremendous amount of interest in the game within the state of Georgia.”

Georgia Southern joins Tulane, Georgia and Syracuse on Tech’s tentative 2015 non-conference schedule.
