Jacksonville State has record home schedule

By CRAIG HALEY

(STATS) - Ohio Valley Conference power Jacksonville State has a school-record seven home games on its 2019 schedule, announced Thursday.

FCS teams are allowed to play 12 games next season.

Highlighting the five-time defending OVC champ's schedule is a Sept. 14 visit by Eastern Washington, the 2018 FCS runner-up. In addition, Southeast Missouri, which ended the Gamecocks' record 36-game conference winning streak last season, will visit Burgess-Snow Field on Homecoming Day Oct. 19.

JSU's open week won't come until Week 12, which leads into the regular-season finale against Eastern Kentucky on Nov. 23.

"We couldn't be more excited about our 2019 football schedule," athletic director Greg Seitz said. "Not only do we have a record-number of home games for our fans, but we were able to secure seven Division I games in what we feel is one of the best settings in the FCS."

Coach John Grass' Gamecocks finished 9-4 and ranked 10th in the STATS FCS Top 25 last season.
