The Georgia State Panthers are scheduled to open the season at home for a 10th season in 2020.

UPDATE: The opening game against Murray State has been canceled as a result of the Ohio Valley Conference opting out of football for the fall. The scheduled date against Alabama also was canceled after the SEC opted for an only-conference schedule.

Georgia State will open the 2020 at Center Parc Stadium Sept. 19 in a revised schedule.

The Panthers are scheduled for two Sun Belt Conference contests on Thursdays at Arkansas State (Oct. 15) and against Coastal Carolina at home (Oct. 29).

The Panthers are coming off their third bowl appearance in five seasons.
