The UNA Lions are starting off the 2016 football season in Jacksonville Thursday night against the JSU Gamecocks.
The last time these two teams met on the football field was in 2013 where JSU beat UNA with a score of 24 to 21 in two overtimes.
Not only is this the oldest series in UNA's football history, but it's considered UNA's oldest rivalry.
