The Bulldogs appear to have a fairly tough non-conference schedule, at first glance. As previously announced, they'll participate in the Old Spice Classic, which takes place Nov. 25-28 on ESPN and ESPN 2. In addition, they'll be facing UAB on December 2, followed by their annual meet up with Tech on December 7, and they close out their non-conference portion by facing the Xavier Musketeers on February 8 (as part of the SEC/Big East Challenge).
"I'm very pleased about the schedule we have put together," Fox said. "We created it to position ourselves for post-season play and I think we were successful in that goal. With eight home games, our non-league schedule should also give our fans plenty to get excited about."
