RICHMOND, Ky. - The Eastern Kentucky University football Maroon & White game scheduled for Saturday has been canceled.

In consultation with sports medicine staff, team staff and university officials, it was determined to be in the best interest of student-athlete safety to cancel the spring game.  A lack of depth at key positions due to injuries and continued adherence to COVID-19 protocols will limit the ability to conduct a simulated game.  In addition, a weather forecast projecting a 100 percent chance of rain will make for less than ideal playing conditions and fan experience.

The 2021 EKU football season begins at Western Carolina on Sept. 4.
