RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University has been playing football since 1909, but will face its neighbor to the north, the University of Kentucky, for just the fourth time on Saturday.
The Colonels (2-1) and Wildcats (3-1) will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Commonwealth Stadium. The game will air live on SEC Network Alternate and online on WatchESPN, where available.
Live stream to air Wednesday, Thursday from 8-10 p.m. ET
LEXINGTON, Ky. – There aren’t many fan bases that camp out for days in order to get free tickets to what equates to a glorified basketball pep rally, but then again, there aren’t many fan bases like the Big Blue Nation. In yet another example of how wild and passionate they are, the UK Sports Network will be debuting “Tent City Live presented by Papa John’s.”
Blue Raiders reach the top of the rankings for the first time in program history
COLUMBIA, Ky. – For the first time in program history, the Lindsey Wilson College football team is the top team in the nation as the latest edition of the NAIA Coaches’ Top 25 Poll was released on Monday by the national office.
The undefeated Blue Raiders moved up one spot from No. 2 to No. 1 after receiving 338 total voting points and 12 first-place votes.
The move to the top of the rankings came after a bye week for Lindsey Wilson, but former No.1-ranked Morningside (Iowa) slipped three spots to No. 4 after suffering their first loss of the season on Thursday.
Eighteen different schools were represented in regional golf action at Wasioto Winds in Pineville on Monday. Included in that total were representatives from both Bell County and Middlesboro. Here are a few photos from around the course during play. Jackson County won the team title with a score of 300 which was two shots better than runnerup Wayne County.
MOREHEAD, Ky. – Highlighted by three takeaways and 11 tackles for loss, the Morehead State football team posted its first back-to-back shutouts since the 1979 season Saturday as the Eagles topped Davidson 34-0 in both teams’ Pioneer Football League openers at Jayne Stadium.
The last back-to-back shutouts came in the middle of the 1979 campaign when MSU handed Austin Peay and UT Martin identical 7-0 defeats. The Eagles improved to 2-2 overall and 1-0 in the league, blanking Kentucky Christian 28-0 last Saturday. Davidson fell to 0-3 and 0-1 in the conference and has still not won a PFL game since 2012.

RICHMOND, Ky. – The Eastern Kentucky University football team never trailed on the way to a 51-13 win over Austin Peay in the Colonels’ Ohio Valley Conference opener Saturday night at Roy Kidd Stadium.
Playing without senior All-American running back Dy’Shawn Mobley, EKU rode the backfield combination of newcomer Adam Lane and freshman Ethan Thomas to victory. Lane and Thomas softened the blow of Mobley’s absence by combining for 118 yards and three touchdowns. Quarterback Bennie Coney, meanwhile, went 28-of-35 for a season-high 261 yards and a touchdown.
