On September 12th, Eastern Kentucky will travel to Morgantown to take on the Mountaineers. This will be the first meeting ever between the two schools, and the Colonels will serve as the season-opener for the Mountaineers. However, this will not be the first game in the Mountain State for the Colonels this season.

According to multiple sources, Eastern Kentucky will travel to Huntington to take on Marshall the week prior to playing the Mountaineers. The two last met in 2018 with Marshall winning 32-16.

The Colonels will now be spending two of their allowed four non-conference games this season in West Virginia.
