Eagles travel to Norfolk for quarterfinal game


Plenty of Georgia Southern football fans got up bright and early Friday to see the team load their buses and head to the airport. The team is heading to Norfolk, Virginia to play against Old Dominion is the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs on Saturday.

For those that won't make the trip, it was their last chance to encourage the players and coaches and let them know that Eagle Nation is behind them. For players, that support means a lot.

"Yes, it is very important. We have great fans that come to our home games and yell like crazy. We always have a good group on the road as well. That means a lot," said Jerrick McKinnon, Georgia Southern quarterback.

The game will be televised live on ESPN Saturday at noon.
