The November 10 Southeast Missouri at Murray State game has been selected as a “Wildcard Selection” in the league’s Game of the Week football package on ESPN3. The game will kick off at 11:00 a.m. CT at Roy Stewart Stadium.
When the league’s eight-contest Game of the Week schedule was announced in August, the Oct. 27, Nov. 3, Nov. 10 and Nov. 17 games were deemed “Wildcard” dates where the matchup would not be announced until roughly two weeks prior to the contest.
Entering this week, Southeast Missouri and Murray State are in a three-way tie for first place in the OVC along with Jacksonville State. Murray State holds a 39-12-1 advantage in the all-time series, although Southeast Missouri has won three in a row and four of the last five in the series. Five of the last seven games in the series have been decided by seven points or less, including a pair of multi-overtime games.
This marks the sixth-straight season the league has produced the Game of the Week package in conjunction with Tupelo Raycom (formerly WebStream Sports). With offices in New York, Indianapolis, Charlotte, Nashville and Los Angeles the company develops new programming and delivers live events, music specials and branded features for broadcast, digital and in-venue entertainment.
