Georgia State to play Alabama in 2010

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia State is wasting no time jumping into
big-time college football.

Georgia State will play at Alabama in its first season in 2010
in a game that will mark Bill Curry's return to the state.

The schools announced Wednesday plans to play on Nov. 20, 2010
at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The game will conclude
Georgia State's inaugural season.

Curry, Georgia State's coach, said playing at Alabama - where he
coached the Crimson Tide to a Southeastern Conference championship
- "quickens the pace of everything we are doing."

Curry coached at Alabama from 1987 through 1989. Alabama won the
1989 SEC championship.
