They won’t been able to get the new synthetic turf down at Truman State in time for their season opener with Missouri S & T, so the August 28th game is being moved to Central Methodist University in Fayette.

This will be the second straight season in which the Miners and Bulldogs will open their season against one another. Truman State edged S&T 38-31 in last year’s opener. It will also mark a homecoming for S&T offensive coordinator Josh Richards, who was the starting quarterback at Central Methodist when he played for the Eagles.

Tickets will cost $5 and will be on sale one hour prior to the kickoff.
