BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The Southern Jaguars enter game week as a huge underdog heading into their season opening game against the University of Houston.
Coach Odums will hold his weekly press conference on August 27. The Jags hope to have all of their attention on the Cougars, who should be a tough test for Southern out of the gates.
However, first-year Head Coach Dawson Odums knows there's much more than just football on his players’ minds.
"They are back in class, and their girlfriends are back on campus, so you have all these distractions,” stated Odums. “You just have to keep your focus."
The Jags will leave campus on Thursday. They'll take on U of H Friday night in Reliant Stadium.
