BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) — Thirteen months. That’s how long it’s been since the Southern University Jaguars touched their home turf in front of thousands of fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With Louisiana in Phase 3 and the sun shining perfectly on the field in A.W. Mumford Stadium at a fabulous 66 degrees, many would agree that this is perfect football weather.
