Today marks a significant day for Jacksonville State football and Rich Rodriguez as they await to find out where they will play their first bowl game in their inaugural FBS season.

For over a month, the team had been eagerly anticipating the news after achieving the six-win mark. It became official during the final week of the regular season, after dealing with the NCAA rules that govern the eligibility of teams transitioning to the FBS level for postseason play.

The Gamecocks attempted to submit a waiver for immediate access to a bowl game and the CUSA title game, but it was denied by the NCAA. Consequently, both Jacksonville State and James Madison had to await the conclusion of the regular season.

The Gamecocks finished the regular season with an 8-4 record, suffering their final loss to New Mexico State. Despite this, they secured third place in the conference after just two conference losses, to New Mexico State and Liberty.
