The Jacksonville State football team is inching closer towards a playoff rematch in the semifinals this weekend. The Gamecocks will face Sam Houston State who sent them packing early in the 2014 playoffs. Head coach John Grass says there is a natural motivating factor with the game, but thinks the "revenge mindset" can only last so long. The team's viewpoint each week has been to play a "faceless opponent" and says despite the opponent, that theme will continue into Saturday.
The Gamecocks and Bearkats square off Saturday at 3:00pm at Burgess-Snow Field.
