Carbondale’s own Southern Illinois University Football team is hot off a win at Northwestern University last weekend. Starting the season 0-2, the Salukis fought to earn their win against the Big Ten school. SIU has only won two games against Big Ten teams in school history, with the last win in 2006 against Indiana!
This weekend the Salukis return home to face North Dakota for Family Weekend and the opening of conference play.
Only four more home games remain in the season. Join us at Pine Manor and enjoy a Saluki Football game just down the road on the SIU campus.
