College football makes comeback in Peach State

MACON, Georgia (USANN4)–After a hiatus of 70 years, football is coming back to the campus of one Georgia university.   Mercer University is reinstating its football program in fall 2013.   The private school plans to compete at the Division One non-scholarship level.

Mercer is one of two Georgia schools where football is making a comeback.   Georgia State University is competing in football for the first time this season.   Kennesaw State University has a goal of fielding a team in 2014.   Last week, students there approved a fee increase to support football.
