Charleston Southern hopes to challenge for Big South title

Charleston, SC (Sports Network) – Charleston Southern football has taken big
steps in coach Jamey Chadwell’s first two seasons.

The Buccaneers hope a Big South championship could come next this season as
part of their challenging 11-game schedule announced Tuesday.

The Bucs will play five games at home, including against 2014 co-Big South
champions Coastal Carolina (Oct. 31) and Liberty (Nov. 14, Homecoming). They
also will host North Greenville (Sept. 3) and East Tennessee State (Sept. 17)
in non-conference action and Big South member Monmouth (Oct. 10).

The road schedule features visits two FBS opponents for the second consecutive
season, Sept. 12 at Troy and Nov. 21 at Alabama.

“I am excited about the opportunities that we have for our 2015 schedule,” said
Chadwell, whose first two teams have finished 10-3 and 8-4. “We have our Big
South games with two of our biggest rivals being at home. It’s also exciting to
have the opportunity to play Troy, which has a rich tradition, and obviously
Alabama, with their history of national prominence, the numerous championships
and the atmosphere of Bryant-Denney Stadium.”
