MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – The South Alabama Jaguars have been ranked #3 in the Sun Belt Conference in this year’s pre-season poll.
The Jags are coming into this season off an overall 6-6 record. A shot at a potential SBC championship, and a bowl game, this year is not out of the question…
After a 2-11 season in 2012, the South Alabama Jaguars entered its 5th season hoping to improve in its second season in the SBC. It did just that. Improving to 6-6 with head coach Joey Jones remaining as a constant reminder of where the program came from…just an idea.
The 2014 is upon us now. The Jags will open the season on the road in Kent, Ohio against Kent State. Next on the list: an SEC school from the west – Mississippi State comes to Ladd-Pebbles for a September 16 showdown. Mixed in with the rest of South Alabama’s Sun Belt competitors, the Jags play another SEC favorite, South Carolina away, and round out the season at home as Navy comes to town.
