BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ----- UAB will play Georgia State in a two-year football series, Blazers' officials announced on Thursday.
The Blazers and Panthers will meet in consecutive seasons -- 2015 and 2016 -- with one game in Birmingham and once in Atlanta.
UAB is scheduled to play Georgia State at Legion Field on Sept. 12, 2015 and will travel to Atlanta a year later to meet the Panthers at the Georgia Dome on Oct. 1, 2016.
