09/12/2017 06:42 PM

The EKU Colonels are enjoying an extra week of preparation for their next opponent, as the Colonels are currently on their bye week.

As a result, they have two weeks to get ready for their first Ohio Valley Conference opponent of the season, Tennessee Tech (0-2).

The Colonels host the Golden Eagles on Saturday, September 23 at 6 p.m. ET inside Roy Kidd Stadium.

EKU enters the match-up with an 0-2 record, although its two losses were to in-state FBS foes WKU and UK.

Spectrum News’ Andrew Chernoff caught up with head coach Mark Elder on Tuesday morning to get his thoughts on his team two games into the season:
