Year 3 of 49ers Football is going to be the best yet! The team jumps to Division 1 play in Conference USA in just its third season under head coach Brad Lambert. The 49ers open their season on Friday, Sept. 4, in a nationally televised game at Georgia State.
“This is another great step for our program,” said coach Brad Lambert. “We’re excited to have our first game in the FBS on national television. This works out great for Niner Nation — for those who will make the trip to Atlanta and those who will catch us on ESPNU.” Game time is 3:30 p.m.
Hot Times in the Hometown, Too!
There’s plenty of action coming to Jerry Richardson Stadium, soon, too.
- First home game Sept. 4 – The 49ers host the Presbyterian College Blue Hose at noon Sept. 12 in our first home game of the season.
- First home game under the lights on Sept. 26 – The big lights at Jerry Richardson Stadium get their regular season debut on Sept. 26 as the 49ers host the Florida Atlantic Owls in our first conference home game of 2015. Kickoff is at 7 pm.
- Homecoming on Oct. 24 – Good luck getting tickets to the season’s most popular game. We take on the Southern Miss Golden Eagles – just 1-7 in conference play last year but moving up the pre-season Conference USA rankings fort 2015.
Coming soon – the Hauser Alumni Pavilion
A big, open building taking shape beside Toby Creek will soon rock with pre- and post-game festivities. The Hauser Alumni Pavilion being built this summer near Phillips Road should be ready for hundreds of tailgating alumni just in time for the Sept. 26 game vs. The Florida Atlantic Owls.
The facility will have about 8,000 square feet of covered space including rest rooms. It’s just a short walk up the hill to Jerry Richardson Stadium. Several other sports venues are nearby, too.
Alumni can sign up now for several tailgating packages. CLICK HERE for details.
