The Citadel Bulldogs are the 2015 Southern Conference co-champions and will appear in the playoffs Saturday, Nov. 28 at Coastal Carolina. It's only the fourth time the Bulldogs have made it to the playoffs, so the college thought it was fitting to show Lt. Gen. Rosa riding the wave in style!
The Bulldogs also made the playoff bracket in 1988, 1990 and 1992. This year's team earned the program's third Southern Conference championship and first since 1992, tying the school record with six conference wins. The Bulldogs enter the playoffs with an 8-3 overall record, tied for the second-highest single-season win total in Citadel history, after finishing the regular season with a 23-22 win at South Carolina.
The Citadel, ranked 18th in the final FCS STATS poll, will travel to Conway, South Carolina, to face Coastal Carolina on Saturday, Nov. 28. The game is set to start at 2 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app. Coastal Carolina is tied for 10th in the final FCS STATS poll and enters the postseason 9-2. The Bulldogs and Chanticleers have met once, opening the 2014 season inside Johnson Hagood Stadium.
Tickets for the game are $15, and fans may order tickets by calling The Citadel Athletic Ticket Office at 843-953-DOGS (3647) or visiting CitadelSports.com/tickets.
