SIU Football Opens at Eastern


By WSIL Manager

CARBONDALE-- In a game that figures to be up-tempo and high-scoring, SIU football opens the season at Eastern Illinois. The Panthers return 19 starters under new Coach Dino Babers, who previously helped coach one of the FBS's best offenses in Baylor.

He brings his spread attack to Charleston, where SIU will counter with their own tempo offense. Both teams are coming off losing seasons, but the Salukis are anxious to show they're much improved from their predicted seventh place Missouri Valley Football preseason finish.
