Eagles Travel to Golden Gophers in 2019

Georgia Southern Adds Minnesota to 2019 Football Schedule
GS to visit Golden Gophers on Sept. 14, 2019

STATESBORO - Georgia Southern Director of Athletics Tom Kleinlein announced Wednesday the addition of the University of Minnesota to the Eagles’ 2019 football slate. GS will travel to Minneapolis on Sept. 14, 2019 for a home game at TCF Bank Stadium.

“Scheduling a game with Minnesota gives us a chance to take the Georgia Southern brand to a part of the country that has never been exposed to Eagle Football,” Kleinlein said. “We’re excited to be able to do that and give our team and fans a new experience and opponent.”

The Eagles and Golden Gophers have never met in football. The game will be the Eagles’ first in the state of Minnesota and their second against a Big Ten team. Georgia Southern is scheduled to play at fellow Big Ten member Indiana next year.

Below is Georgia Southern’s scheduled non-conference slate through 2019:

at Auburn (Sept. 2)
New Hampshire (Sept. 9)
at Indiana (Sept. 23)
at UMass (Oct. 21)

Presbyterian College (Sept. 1)
UMass (Sept. 8)
at Clemson (Sept. 15)
at Kent State (Sept. 22)

at LSU (Aug. 31)
at Minnesota (Sept. 14)
Kent State (Sept. 21)
