Augusta State University’s sports teams will compete as Georgia Regents University beginning in fall 2013, Athletics Director Clint Bryant said in a news release Tuesday.

The Jaguars will continue to represent Augusta State during this academic year.

“I’m excited about having a name for the new university and starting a new era for our Department of Intercollegiate Athletics,” Bryant said.

“The Jaguar Nation will remain strong and we will remain unified throughout the consolidation of these two great universities.”

The Jaguar mascot was retained through the merger.
