#14 MahariI Stribing

We now know that both FCS out of conference games (EKU & GWU) have been either canceled or postponed for the fall.

We're not sure about the status of the game against Liberty, but rumors are we will play both Liberty and EKU in November. Since Gardner-Webb has decided not to play in the fall, not sure if we will have a third game.

However, we will continue our countdown as if the season were to start Sept. 3rd.

Today, we'll highlight a wide receiver:
