ATLANTA — The Georgia State Panthers finally got to play another game in their new Georgia State Stadium, but it was the visiting Troy Trojans who looked right at home in a 34-10 rout.

The Panthers converted the Atlanta Braves’ old Turner Field into a college football stadium during the off-season, and the unique facility made its debut on Thursday, Aug. 31, as the Panthers were upset by Tennessee State in a 17-10 loss.

They were supposed to play their second game at their new home on Saturday, Sept. 30, but thanks to the ripple effect from Hurricane Irma’s hit on Florida, the game with Memphis was canceled as the Tigers reshuffled their conference schedule.

It took another 21 days after that before Saturday’s game with Troy finally rolled around, and unfortunately for the home crowd, the Panthers still look like strangers in their new digs falling to 0-2 at the stadium.

They get another chance Thursday night to get their first win on their new home field against South Alabama.

Troy, meanwhile, will return home to host Georgia Southern on Saturday.
