Georgia Southern University athletics will sponsor a student tailgate before the Eagle volleyball match against the University of Georgia on Sept. 10, a week from today.

The tailgate will be the first opportunity students have to pick up tickets for the GSU football game at the University of Florida, Nov. 23. The tailgate will start at 4 p.m. in the Hanner Fieldhouse parking lot, and the volleyball match against UGA will start at 6 p.m.

Volleyball season tickets are also available for $20 for the team’s 15 home games.  Some of the matches that the Eagles will play include UGA, Appalachian State University and two home tournaments, the SpringHill Suites Invitational Sept. 13-14 and the Bash in the ‘Boro Sept. 20-21.

The Eagles won the Jaguar Invitational this past weekend, sweeping the competition 3-0 as junior outside hitter Jamie DeRatt earned Most Valuable Player honors for the tournament.

GSU will compete in the Magnolia Invitational this weekend with three matches set versus Arkansas State University, the University of Mississippi and Kennesaw State University.
