RICHMOND, Ky. – The EKU football team appeared at No. 24 in the Athlon Sports’ Preseason FCS Top 25 on Monday morning. The Colonels are making their first appearance in the preseason poll since 2016. 
  
The 2021 season marked the single-largest turnaround in EKU football history, as the Colonels improved from 3-6 in 2020 to 7-4. EKU climbed as high as No. 19 in the national polls during the season and won five consecutive games for the first time since 2014. The Colonels also defeated three teams that were ranked in the preseason top-25. 
 
The Colonels return 12 starters from last year’s team, including eight on offense, and over 80 percent of their total offensive yards and 76 percent of their scoring.
 
EKU will kick off the 2022 season on the road versus Eastern Michigan on Friday night, Sept. 2.
 
The Colonels play six home games at Roy Kidd Stadium this year, including three ASUN contests against North Alabama (Oct. 22), Central Arkansas (Nov. 5), and Kennesaw State (Nov. 19).
