[slideshow_deploy id=’12746′]While you were stuffing your faces with turkey and dressing and heading out in the middle of the night for Black Friday shopping Georgia Southern University athletics were hard at work. The football team upset the University of Florida 26-20 to get the Eagles first win against an FBS opponent solidifying the move to the Sun Belt Conference. The volleyball team will advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2010 as they defeated Samford University 3-1 to win the SoCon Championship.
