The Eastern Kentucky football team is hoping to bounce back this Saturday after falling in a heartbreaker this past weekend.

The Colonels (3-6, 3-4) will welcome Austin Peay (6-4, 5-1) to Roy Kidd Stadium for a 1 p.m. ET start time.

EKU is coming off a 23-20 overtime loss to Eastern Illinois (6-4, 5-2) this past weekend.

EKU head coach Mark Elder joined Sports Night on Tuesday. He spoke with Spectrum News’ Andrew Chernoff about this past weekend’s game and about what he expects to see from Austin Peay this weekend:
