The missing pieces in Georgia State’s football schedule are in place.
The Panthers will play Clark Atlanta on Friday, Sept. 2. The game was originally scheduled for Sept. 1, but the Falcons are also scheduled to play a preseason game on that date, assuming the NFL solves its work-stoppage and the season begins.
The Panthers will play St. Francis, an NAIA school from Joliet, Ill., in place of Lambuth, which closed. The game will be Nov. 5 at the Dome.
The Fighting Saints went 7-4 last season. They averaged 30.8 points per game and allowed 23.5.
