KSU to face Jacksonville State at SunTrust Park

KENNESAW, Ga. (Nov 14, 2018) — Fresh off of its second consecutive Big South Conference championship, Kennesaw State is gearing up for a historic matchup against Jacksonville State on Saturday, Nov. 17, in the first football game at SunTrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves.

Currently ranked No. 2 nationally, the Owls are on a nine-game winning streak after downing Monmouth 51-14 last week to claim the program’s second conference title in four years of existence.
