Kennesaw State Football Starts Training for First FBS Season

Kennesaw State University’s football team is gearing up for an exciting new chapter as they prepare for their first-ever season in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). With spring practice kicking off, the team is diving into intense preparations for what promises to be a memorable season.

Under the guidance of Coach Brian Bohannon, the team has made significant changes to its coaching staff, welcoming three new coordinators to lead the offense and defense. Chandler Burks and Stewart Cook, both former players, are now co-offensive coordinators, while Greg Harris has been promoted to defensive coordinator.

The spring practice sessions, which began on Wednesday, mark the beginning of the team’s journey into FBS football. These sessions serve as an opportunity for players to adapt to new coaching strategies, refine their skills, and build team chemistry ahead of the upcoming season.

The highlight of the spring practice period will be the annual spring game scheduled for April 19 at Fifth Third Stadium, providing fans with a glimpse of what to expect in the upcoming season.

Looking ahead to the season schedule, the Owls have lined up several exciting matchups. Their season opener on August 31 will see them facing off against Texas-San Antonio, marking their debut in the FBS.

Following this, they will return home to Fifth Third Stadium for their home opener against Louisiana-Lafayette on September 7, providing fans with an opportunity to show their support for the team. One of the most anticipated games on the schedule is their first-ever Conference USA matchup against Jacksonville State on October 4, which will test the team’s readiness for conference play.

As they transition into the FBS, the Owls face both challenges and opportunities unique to this division. From adjusting to higher levels of competition to establishing themselves within Conference USA, the team is focused on building momentum throughout the season.
