EKU ATHLETICS | FBS is still the goal, but only if it is definitely the right move

06/30/2016 06:04 PM

The Colonels’ football team is just one of the many athletic programs at Eastern Kentucky University set to experience major renovations to their facilities. Roy Kidd Stadium is scheduled for improvements to existing facilities in addition to increased seating for Colonel fans.

It is just one step in the continued growth of Eastern’s football program, which could also include an invite to a FBS conference. That invite is the goal, but Athletic Director Steve Lochmueller says EKU will only accept if the school is in a position to thrive at the FBS level.
