For Southern University, their goal is simple – to be SWAC Champs.
Head Coach Pete Richardson, in his 16th season in Baton Rouge, expects the Jaguars to be in the hunt for the title. Headlining the SU attack is QB Bryant Lee, the 2008 SWAC Preseason Offensive Player of the Year. Â With a new three year contract in hand, head coach Pete Richardson and the Southern Jaguars will look to improve on an 8-3 record in 2007. SU finished 6-3 in the SWACâ€™s Western Division, good for a second place finish. After back-to-back losing seasons in â€™05 (4-7) and â€™06 (5-6), Southern bounced back strongly last season with their eight wins, but even in their three losses, SU had opportunities to win those games. The Jags three losses were by a total of 13 points.
