With App postponed we are looking for a Oct 17th game
To avoid 3 weeks between games we are looking hard to schedule a 12th game on Oct 17. Anyone off that Saturday and want a game?

USA will go 3 weeks and 2 days between our last game with UAB and our next game with TXST. I hate it.

UMass was eyeing 10/17 or 10/24 to start their season. Schedule still in flux. They’re probably counting on a lot of teams in GS’s position to schedule them last minute. Good on you guys to jump on the opportunity. I think it will be an easy win.

I would, but we're due to lose to Georgia State that Thursday, and its very important to keep your appointments.

Sorry for not seeing this thread early GaSoEagle. Will be looking forward to see the team play. We are young and gaining experience and rewarding the players, who did everything the Administration asked, is nice to see happening.

To update, our sources indicate that this game would be on the road at Georgia Southern and is all but official

The Minutemen and Eagles have a history dating back to the FCS days and split a pair of meetings in '17/'18

GA So is 2-1 so far this year:

Ws - ULM/Campbell

L - ULL

That means we still have a 12 game schedule right? Wait, do we even have 12 games? I can't keep up with all these musical chairs

My understanding is we lose the FAU game if they win their division or another conference game gets postponed.

How Georgia Southern added a football game less than 10 days before kickoff
https://www.savannahnow.com/sports/20201...re-kickoff

With Jared Benko and the speculation from FightMassachusetts is that the team originally line up by UMass may have been FAU.
Quote:Fight Massachusetts
@FightMA247

Based off that information combined with what we've heard from our sources, we believe that opponent may be Florida Atlantic

FAU is the only team in the G5 we could find that was off 10/17 and has a free week later this season; they're free on 11/21 as of now

Quote:“There’s a couple of irons in the fire,” Benko said Wednesday. “Here’s the reality: it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to look online and see who has an open week next week. We’ve seen the whole year that some games get canceled or scheduled.”
..
So that left the University of Massachusetts, Rice and a handful of FCS teams that had open dates next weekend.

“I knew (UMass AD) Ryan Bamford from my time at Mississippi State, we actually played UMass back in 2016 up in Gillette Stadium,” Benko said Thursday. “So I knew him a little bit from that time. I gave him a call and he was very interested.”

UMass only recently made the decision to play football this fall, changing course on Sept. 21 from an Aug. 11 decision.

Bamford spent the past few weeks chasing down opponents for his Independent team to face.

The Minutemen had an opponent for Oct. 17, but were able to get it moved to later into the season.

“This matchup really crystallized and it moved really fast with Ryan,” Benko said Thursday. “Part of that is just knowing him and there’s a level of trust there when you’re working quickly. Once Ryan said he was all-in, obviously I’m the same way and we worked pretty quickly.”

Benko actually sent the contract to his friend in Amherst, Mass., on Wednesday night.

‘It needs to make sense’

“At the end of the day, coach (Chad) Lunsford does a great job with our team and our guys, and if we’re going to have a matchup, it needs to make sense for us,” Benko said Thursday. “It was a little easier than when we scheduled Army. I think it’s all about perspective.
