Football continues preparation for Saturday’s season opener at Campbell

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern football team continues preparation for its upcoming season opener at Campbell University this Saturday, Aug. 30, at 12 p.m. CT in Buies Creek, N.C.

“We practiced late Monday afternoon and early Tuesday morning, trying to fit practice around freshman orientation,” Head Coach Eddie Garfinkle said. “Both practices were held in a steady drizzle and it was good for us to work in those conditions. We definitely handled the football better in the second practice.

“We are trying to get ready for Campbell, but it is all a guess since this is their first game in 58 years. Campbell brought football back to campus last season but did not play a schedule, and they have been practicing for this opening game for a whole year already.”
