Watch now: ISU football suspends fall practice over continued schedule uncertainty

NORMAL — The Illinois State football schedule is down to one fall game — a Sept. 12 home contest against Eastern Illinois.

With continuing uncertainty surrounding that game, the Redbirds have suspended their fall practice schedule.

“That game is still on the schedule,” ISU director of athletics Larry Lyons said Wednesday. “The OVC (Ohio Valley Conference) is having their meeting tomorrow (Thursday). We will wait and see what the outcome is.

“Tom Michael (Eastern AD) and I have had a couple conversations. We’ll have a follow up conversation on Friday.”

Lyons has inquired and received inquiries from other schools, including FBS programs, about possible fall games.
