SIU Football Adds Game on April 17

SIU Salukis

After having its original regular season finale this Saturday canceled after Western Illinois opted out of the remainder of its season, the SIU football team has found a new game to conclude the regular season.
The Salukis will host Southeastern Louisiana.

The 16th ranked Salukis and the 19th ranked Lions will square off at noon on April 17 at Saluki Stadium.

The game between two ranked teams could have playoff implications, especially since it takes place the day before the selection committee announces the field for the 16-team FCS Playoffs.

Originally scheduled for the Western game, the contest versus the Lions will be billed as SIU's annual "Blackout Cancer" game.
