South Alabama 2024 Football Schedule: Full List of Jaguars’ Opponents This Fall

    Find every opponent and location for the official South Alabama 2024 football schedule as the Jaguars begin a new era under Major Applewhite.

    After running rampant through the Sun Belt conference two years ago, the South Alabama Jaguars came back down to earth with a bump last fall, scraping a 4-4 conference record. Head coach Kane Wommack left to pursue other opportunities, leaving Major Applewhite to take the reigns and navigate the program through the South Alabama 2024 football schedule.

    According to the CFN Strength of Schedule, the South Alabama 2024 football schedule is the sixth most difficult in the Sun Belt. While the conference schedule carries some potential pitfalls, the Jaguars’ season starts with a mix of opponents from outside the Sun Belt who could upset Applewhite’s apple cart before the new campaign is in full swing.

    A Thursday night clash with non-FBS outfit the Northwestern State Demons in Week 3 is the only slam dunk on the early portion of the South Alabama 2024 football schedule. The North Texas Mean Green will be a difficult opponent to open the season. A road trip to Athens to face the Ohio Bobcats is fraught with difficulty before you get to Death Valley and LSU in Week 5.

    While the South Alabama 2024 football schedule is the sixth most difficult in the Sun Belt, it could have been a lot harder. The Jaguars will entertain two contenders — the Troy Trojans and Texas State Bobcats — that would have been a significantly tougher mission on the road. Meanwhile, they avoid the James Madison Dukes altogether in another dodged bullet.

    Home games against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks and Georgia Southern Eagles give the Jaguars winnable games, as does the road trip to the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. However, the Sun Belt opener on the road at an Appalachian State Mountaineers side with title-winning talent has the potential to define the success or failure of the 2024 football campaign early.
