Report: EKU at WVU is still on after OVC votes to allow non-conference games


West Virginia’s season-opening matchup with Eastern Kentucky is still on, according to a report from Yahoo’s Pete Thamel.

Thamel tweeted Friday that the presidents of the Ohio Valley Conference voted to allow four non-conference games this season, as well as a seven-game conference slate.

The OVC and the Big 12 make up two of the six conferences that are steadfast in putting on a football season this fall (dubbed as the “Stubborn Six” by Sports Illustrated’s Pat Forde and Ross Dellenger), despite the NCAA’s recent cancellation of fall sports championships.

After the Big 12’s announcement that it would move forward, the conference released a revised schedule, ultimately announcing EKU as the Mountaineers’ season opener on Sept. 12.
