Eastern Kentucky University’s football game against Tennessee Tech University, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 8, at Roy Kidd Stadium, is being moved to Toyota Stadium at Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky, Director of Athletics Steve Lochmueller announced today (Wednesday, Oct. 7).
Eastern Kentucky University President Michael Benson announced today the closing of all EKU campuses for Thursday, Oct. 8 and Friday, Oct. 9 due to a security threat on campus. This decision was made to allow law enforcement to conduct a thorough investigation of the continuing threat and ensure the safety of the campus community.
The Colonels and Golden Eagles will kick off their game at 7 p.m. at Toyota Stadium. This facility was once the home to the Cincinnati Bengals' Summer Training Camp. It now serves as the home to Georgetown College football, Georgetown College men's and women's soccer, Scott County High School football and Scott County High School boys' and girls' soccer.
