It’s go time once again for the Georgia State football team. The Panthers open preseason practice Wednesday, embarking on their second season under head coach Shawn Elliot.

Georgia State looks to build on the momentum of last season's strong finish, which produced the program's first winning season (7-5) at the FBS level and first bowl victory, a 27-17 win over Western Kentucky in the AutoNation Cure Bowl.

They open the season against Atlanta-area rival Kennesaw State on Thursday, Aug. 30 at Georgia State Stadium (7pm).

Entercom Atlanta announced in July a new exclusive broadcast partnership with Georgia State University. As part of the agreement, 92.9 THE GAME (WZGC-FM) and News & Talk 1380 (WAOK-AM) in Atlanta will broadcast all Georgia State University Athletics football, men’s and women’s basketball games. The partnership is effective at the start of the 2018-19 season.
