South Alabama AD offered to move homecoming game to make LSU vs. Florida happen, report says

According to a report from AL.com, South Alabama athletic director Joel Erdmann said he tried to work around LSU’s schedule so the matchup could still be played. He even offered to move the team’s homecoming game (scheduled for Oct. 29, LSU’s open date).

“Obviously we are extremely disappointed to not have the opportunity to play in Baton Rouge on Nov. 19,” Erdmann said, according to AL.com. “This disappointment runs throughout our program, including our student-athletes, coaches, the University of South Alabama and all Jaguar fans. We realize this is a very complicated and unique situation. The University of South Alabama — with the assistance of the Sun Belt Conference — did everything reasonable within our power to make the game a reality, including offering to move our Homecoming game to a later date.”

LSU bought out the team for $1.5 million, according to the report, but South Alabama now only has 11 games on its schedule.
