SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah State football schedule is set for 2019 and the Tigers’ return to the Division II ranks.
SSU unveiled the schedule Thursday afternoon, and the slate features a renewal of several old rivalries.
The Tigers will play four home games this season, including a season opener at T.A. Wright Stadium for the first time since 2011. The schedule also includes a stretch of five consecutive road games between September 21 and October 19. The road trip will send the Tigers to Atlanta and the state of South Carolina twice along with a trip to Lorman, Mississippi.
Homecoming will be on October 26 as the Tigers welcome old SIAC rival Albany State to the Hostess City. It will be the 62nd all-time meeting between the Tigers and Golden Rams, and first in eight years.
