EKU FOOTBALL | Colonels Getting Ready to Attend OVC Media Day

07/22/2017 01:26 PM

EKU head coach Mark Elder is getting more and more excited for the regular season to finally arrive.

His team is counting down the days until official practice can begin. But, before practice starts, his Colonels have to participate in Ohio Valley Conference Media Day, which takes place Monday in Nashville.

Elder joined Andrew Chernoff on Sports Night Friday to talk about how the offseason has treated his team and about what he expects at OVC Media Day.

The Colonels open up the regular season at Western Kentucky on Saturday, September 2. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET in Bowling Green, Ky.
