EKU will unveil Roy Kidd statue, honor ’67 champs at this week’s home opener

@EKUFOOTBALL GAME WEEK:  KIDD STATUE, 1967 TEAM, NEW STADIUM EAST SIDE, 1ST HOME GAME – IT’S A BIG WEEK

 

RICHMOND, Ky. – It’s going to be a big week for Eastern Kentucky University football.  After close loses to a pair of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams on the road to begin the season, EKU will play its first home game against Ohio Valley Conference rival Tennessee Tech on Saturday at 6 p.m.

 

That would be plenty of excitement for Colonel fans, but that’s not all.  EKU will unveil a statue of College Football Hall of Fame coach Roy Kidd on Saturday.  Kidd won 314 games, including two national championships, as the head coach of the Colonels from 1964 to 2002.

 

The football team that started the championship tradition at Eastern Kentucky — the 1967 Grantland Rice Bowl Champions — will be honored at the game as well.

 

In addition, fans will get their first look at the newly constructed east side of Roy Kidd Stadium.  The project includes over 3,000 new bleacher seats, and a concourse that features modern concessions and restroom facilities.  A new pedway from the hill beyond the north end zone leads onto the concourse level.  The student section will now be on this side of the stadium, conveniently located to the nearby new student tailgating lot, which surrounds the Fitness and Wellness center.

 

The live radio broadcast of the game is available in the Richmond area on WCYO 100.7 FM, and can be heard worldwide on EKUSports.com.  A live free video broadcast is available on OVCDigitalNetwork.com. Continue reading

Derrick Baity Jr. named Defensive Player of the Week; Austin MacGinnis wins Special Teams Player of the Week 

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky junior cornerback Derrick Baity Jr. and senior kicker Austin MacGinnis were named Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week and Special Teams Player of the Week, respectively, for their standout performances in Saturday’s 23-13 victory at South Carolina, the league announced on Monday.

 

This is the fourth time in school history that Kentucky has had at least two players honored for the same game.  In 2007, linebacker Wesley Woodyard was SEC Defensive Player of the Week and guard Jason Leger was SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week following a win at Arkansas, while the Cats earned multiple honors in their 2016 victories over Mississippi State and at Louisville.

 

Baity, from Tampa, Fla., was responsible for three takeaways in the game, including making the initial stop on a pair of critical 4th-and-1’s in the second half and an interception on South Carolina’s final possession. On the first possession of the third quarter, on 4th-and-1 from the UK 49-yard line, he crashed from the corner to tackle running back A.J. Turner, who was brought down for no gain; the change of possession set up a UK drive for a field goal. Later, he again crashed from the corner to tackle running back Rico Dowdle, who was brought down for no gain to give the ball back to the Wildcats.

 

MacGinnis, a Wedowee, Ala. native, drilled three field goals in the win, making him 6-of-7 on the season. Also, his six pinpoint kickoffs kept the ball out of the hands of Gamecock return ace Deebo Samuel and consistently helped the Cats control the field position battle. This is the third time he’s been honored as SEC Special Teams Player of the Week.
