There is no doubt Jacksonville State’s matchup against Eastern Kentucky this weekend will be the toughest test of the OVC slate to this point. The Gamecocks continued their preparation today for the 8-1 Colonels on the road. Eastern Kentucky is No. 15 in the country and have a 3-0 record at home. JSU quarterback Eli Jenkins says the team embraces the road atmosphere.
According to the stats, these are two of the best teams in the league on both sides of the ball. JSU ranks first in the OVC in scoring defense, while EKU is second. The Gamecocks are also No. 1 in scoring offense at 38 points per game, the Colonels are 3rd at 37.4 points per contest. The Gamecocks and Colonels hook up in Richmond, Kentucky this Saturday at noon.
