TTU To Open Conference Schedule On The Road

Tennessee Tech, which has not claimed an OVC title in 35 years, will visit Southeast Missouri on Saturday to open their conference schedule. SEMO has also never claimed an OVC crown, but they are coming off a stunning 24-21 win at No. 5 Southern Illinois last Saturday to improve to 2-1 overall. Tech, meanwhile, has had about 10 days to prepare for the game after downing Lane College, 43-0, last Thursday night. The Golden Eagles are 1-2 overall with their two losses coming at No. 17 Arkansas and No. 4 TCU. Tech has won four in a row from SEMO, including a 28-16 victory last year in which the Golden Eagle defense intercepted three passes in Tucker Stadium.
