Tennessee State Releases 2017 Football Schedule (1137 hits)

Tennessee State University released its 2017 football schedule on Wednesday. The Tigers’ slate is highlighted with a game at FBS Georgia State and matchups with two longtime HBCU rivals.

TSU will travel to Atlanta to face Sun Belt member Georgia State to open the season. The game is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 31. The Tigers will then travel to Memphis for its annual game with Jackson State in the Southern Heritage Classic on Sept. 9.

The following week (Sept. 16) will pit the Big Blue against Florida A&M at a location to be announced at a later date.

“We feel this contest is a terrific financial and recruiting opportunity for both our universities,” said Director of Athletics Teresa Phillips. “We have a great rivalry with Florida A&M and are excited about the prospect of continuing this series.”
