USA Football game against Southern Mississippi moved up, opening game against Tulane


MOBILE, Ala. – The University of South Alabama football team has a new date and a new opponent for the opening two weeks of the 2020 season.

The Jaguars will now kick off the campaign at Southern Mississippi on Thursday, Sept. 3 — with game time in Hattiesburg set for 7 p.m. (CDT) — while the following week Tulane will visit for the first-ever game at the new Hancock Whitney Stadium at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12.

It will be the first time South and the Green Wave have played since the Jags picked up a 41-39 win in New Orleans on Sept. 7, 2013.  The two teams are also scheduled to meet in Mobile on Sept. 6, 2025, while future match-ups between the programs in New Orleans are slated for Sept. 2, 2023, as well as Sept. 12, 2026.

Television information for both the USM and TU contests this fall are expected to be announced in the near future.  No other games are expected to be added to the schedule at this time.
