Football to Play Morehead State

BUENA VISTA, Va. - Southern Virginia University Football will look to rebound from a tough opening loss when they play at Morehead State Sept. 5 at 7:00 PM.

The game will be a rematch from last season when the Knights travelled to Morehead, Kentucky to play the Eagles. The Knights played a hard fought game, but were eventually overcome by the NCAA Division I-AA, or FCS, team falling 49-6.

This will be the second game for the Knights of the season, after falling to Concord University last Saturday. The game will be the opener of the season for the Eagles.

SVU will look to continue their positive offensive effort from last week, when they racked up 320 yards of total offense. Quarterback Sam Trulock will be looked to again, to provide the offensive threats in the air as well as on the ground.

The meeting between the two teams is the second meeting for the programs.
