EKU Battles Southeast Missouri in OVC Opener Saturday

Eastern Kentucky University

Eastern Kentucky University returns home Saturday to open Ohio Valley Conference play against Southeast Missouri State.  The Colonels will be trying to get their first OVC victory and even their record at two and two.

EKU is coming off a hard fought, but disappointing 42-35 loss at Bowling Green last weekend.  Meanwhile, Southeast Missouri got a four point win 48 to 44, on the road, over Southern Illinois.  Redhawks running back Marquis Terry rushed for a conference record of 311 yards. 

As a team, the Colonels rank first in yards gained on the ground at almost 311 yards a game.  EKU leads the all time series against SEMO at 24 to 4, but Southeast won last year’s game in Cape Girardeau.?  Kickoff Saturday at Roy Kidd Stadium is set for 4:00.
