Samford Holds Final Practice Before Opener

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

The Samford football team held its final full practice in preparation for Friday night's season-opening game at Georgia State in the Georgia Dome, with an hour-long workout in shorts and helmets Wednesday afternoon at Seibert Stadium.

Samford will do so without its head coach, Pat Sullivan.  Sullivan is still recovering from a cervical fusion procedure done in July.

The Bulldogs have a chance to make history.  The team has never won a game against a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent.  The Panthers enter just their fourth full season of football.

Samford is also looking to start the season off with a win for the second year in a row. Last season, the Bulldogs defeated Furman, 24-21, to open the season.
