Southern head football coach gives his thoughts during SWAC Media Days

HOOVER, AL (WAFB) - Southern University Head Coach Dalson Odom sat down with WAFB Sports to give his thoughts on the SWAC Media Days.

"It's exciting," says the third-year head coach. "SWAC Media Day means that football is right around the corner." While preseason polls put the Jags in 2nd place, Odom says that the predictions do not faze him.

"If they're passing out preseason trophies, I comment the coaches getting those today," said Odom. "Everything that is on the line is at the end of the season."

The end of the season is a bit different for the SWAC, thanks to the Celebration Bowl, which will pit the SWAC champion versus the MEAC champion on December 19. This new game, Odom says, will give the schools a chance to play one more week.

The Southern University Jaguars face Louisiana Tech in Ruston on September 5.
