In a first that I’ve heard of, a visiting team is calling for a “whiteout” in another team’s stadium.
It will be the first meeting in football between the two schools.
Kickoff is at 2 p.m.
“I play South Alabama this weekend, that’s what I’m worried about,” Georgia State (1-5, 0-3 Sun Belt) coach Trent Miles said. The Panthers and Jags will start at 7:30 p.m. in Mobile.
The Eagles (5-2, 4-0 Sun Belt) are off this week.
Asking fans to wear a specific color is an oft-used device by coaches and marketing departments to try to excite and unify fans. Until now, it’s almost always done by the home team.
Update: a reader said that Florida did a “White Out” at Tennessee and that Southern did a “Blue Out” at Tech this year, so it has been done before.
Georgia State fans, what do you think about this tactic by the Eagles?
