SIU Football Releases the Updated Spring Schedule
SIU released its updated spring football schedule on Thursday.
The Salukis open up the 8-game Missouri Valley Conference-only season on February 20 at conference newcomer North Dakota.
Head Coach Nick Hill says he can't wait to get started.
"I'm just excited about any games and all games. So, you find yourself going through the schedule, they're all big games. I think 6 out of the 8 teams played in the playoffs last year. North Dakota got in over us. We haven't forgotten that."
The schedule had to be updated after Indiana State decided not to play football this spring. The Salukis will now play defending nation champion North Dakota State instead of the Sycamores.
The complete schedule is available here.
