In front of a season-best homecoming crowd of 8,145, the Morehead State football team survived a late charge from Pioneer Football League opponent Valparaiso and scored a 31-24 victory on Saturday afternoon at Jayne Stadium.

The victory improves Morehead State to 3-4 overall and 2-2 in PFL play.

After allowing the Crusaders to pull the game within a score and recover an onside kick with 1:15 remaining, senior safety Sayyid Kanu came through clutch for the Eagles' defense by picking off a pass from Valparaiso quarterback Jimmy Seewald and returning it 66 yards.

After an uncharacteristic offensive performance last night, Morehead State volleyball's offensive woes continued on Saturday in a three-set defeat at Eastern Illinois. The Panthers (9-16, 4-6 OVC) swept the Eagles (16-7, 7-3 OVC), taking the match 25-23, 25-16, and 25-14.


Morehead State baseball is riding an all-time high in success with OVC Tournament titles in 2015 and 2018. Back in 1993, there was another pretty solid team on the diamond at Allen Field, and they won the OVC Tournament title too.

This weekend, that group will be back for Homecoming and celebrate the 25-year anniversary of claiming their league title rings.

MDC Hunting and Fishing

Many deer hunters rejoiced this past weekend over a break in a weather pattern that had been alternating between stifling heat and soaking rains.

A cool down coincided with the two-day gun season for youth deer hunters. It also excited archery and crossbow hunters getting into the woods, blinds and tree stands.

“It wasn’t really fit to do much but go hunting,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer and elk program coordinator with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “We saw good participation over the weekend.”
