Georgia State opens the 2017 season with a new home, a new coach and a new era for the football program. The Panthers will open the season against Tennessee State playing the first game in Parker H. Petit Field at Georgia State Stadium following the renovation of Turner Field, the former home of the Atlanta Braves. The season opener will also serve as the first game for new head coach Shawn Elliott who took over the reigns of the program last December.
