ALBANY, Georgia -- The Albany State Golden Rams football program has added a huge addition to its 2016 schedule. Instead of having an open date on Oct. 8, ASU has will play Division I Charleston Southern University in Charleston, S.C. The game with Big South Conference competitors gives the Golden Rams a 10-game slate for the season.
"We're glad to have the opportunity to add Charleston Southern to our schedule," ASU head football coach Dan Land said. "Charleston Southern had great success last year, and they will provide us with some good, solid competition."
During the 2015 season, Charleston Southern finished with a 10-3 overall record and 6-0 league mark in the Big South, winning the conference championship. The Buccaneers earned a spot in the 2015 NCAA FCS Playoffs. They lost in the quarterfinals to Jacksonville State by a 58-38 score.
The Albany State-Charleston Southern game will be played at CSU's Whitfield Stadium Center on Buccaneer Field on Oct. 8. The game time will be determined at a later date.
