Eastern Illinois Looking For Win Saturday

Eastern Illinois will play its final road game of the 2021 season as the Panthers travel to Austin Peay on Saturday afternoon.  


EIU led Southeast Missouri at the half last weekend but could not hold off a big third quarter by the Redhawks as EIU fell to 1-8 on the season, 1-3 in the OVC. 


Austin Peay lost last week to league leader UT Martin as the Skyhawks scored in the final minutes and blocked a late APSU field goal attempt as time expired.  APSU fell to 3-5 overall, 1-2 in the OVC.  


The two schools did not meet in the spring as their game was canceled at the end of the season due to COVID-19.


Isaiah Hill had the biggest game of his EIU career on Saturday at Southeast Missouri as the 2019 All-OVC Newcomer selection continues his return to the EIU line-up.  Appearing in just his third game this season, Hill hauled in 11 passes for 207 yards on Saturday including one touchdown reception.


Game time is 2 pm Saturday and can be heard on WHOW starting at 1:30 pm.
