The first three home games, all in September, start at 6 p.m. The final three home games are scheduled for a 2 p.m. kickoff. Georgia Southern plays three of its first four games at Paulson Stadium. All times are subject to change because of television broadcasts.

The public is invited to the football scrimmage at Paulson Stadium, starting at 9:30 a.m., Season tickets will be on sale and it is the Pick-A-Seat Day promotion.
Following the scrimmage, the public is invited to an Open House at the Parrish Football Center.

Starting at 12:30 p.m. the annual Clements Crazies Tailgate Party begins. There will be picnic food for the entire family behind the Parrish Center, and the GSU cheerleaders, pep band and GUS will attend.
