MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota has finalized an agreement to play Georgia Southern at home during the 2019 season.

The university on Wednesday announced the addition to the schedule, which also includes a home game against South Dakota State and a road trip to Fresno State that year.

Georgia Southern was a perennial FCS power and is now in its third season at the FBS level in the Sun Belt Conference. The Gophers are 11-1 all-time against current members of the league, having lost to New Mexico State at home in 2011.

The Gophers will host Buffalo and Middle Tennessee State in 2017 and travel to Oregon State. In 2018, they will play New Mexico State, Fresno State and Miami of Ohio - all at home.
