South Alabama-Navy to play four-game series

MOBILE – South Alabama has signed to play a four-game football series with Navy.

The first game of the home-and-home series is scheduled for 2013 in Annapolis, Md. That’s the first year the Jaguars will be competing in the Football Bowls Subdivision.

South Alabama athletic director Joe Gottfried said the Midshipmen will visit Ladd-Peebles Stadium in 2014 and 2016.

The Jaguars field their first team in 2009 and later join the Sun Belt Conference.
