The EKU football team is looking to snap a three-game losing streak this weekend, as the school celebrates homecoming.

The Colonels (1-5, 1-3) are coming off a 41-25 loss to No. 3 Jacksonville St. this past Saturday.

They will hope to bounce back this Saturday when they host UT Martin (3-3, 1-2) at 3 p.m. ET inside Roy Kidd Stadium. The game will serve as Eastern Kentucky’s homecoming match-up.

EKU head coach Mark Elder joined Sports Night on Tuesday to preview this weekend’s Ohio Valley Conference game against UT Martin:
