The Jackson State Tigers have announced their 2021 fall football schedule.
“We are very excited to announce our fall 2021 football schedule,” JSU head football coach Deion Sanders said. “Our young men are able to play in fantastic venues and will receive great experience. I would like to thank our great Vice President and Director of Athletics Ashley Robinson for setting the table for an entertaining and exciting slate.”
Opening the season on Sunday, September 5, in the Orange Blossom Classic versus Florida A&M at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, the full 11-game schedule includes eight Southwestern Athletic Conference contests, five home games, and two neutral-site affairs.
The Tigers will look to use current talent, plus the best incoming recruiting class in HBCU history, to make it to the SWAC Championship, which is set for December 4.
