OVC planning for fall AND spring football

Forget having one college football season, the Ohio Valley Conference is planning to have two.

According to Pete Thamel of Yahoo! Sports, the OVC Presidents voted to allow schools to play four non-conference games in the fall, followed by an additional seven-game conference schedule in the spring.

The OVC and Big South have voted to move forward with mixed schedules, though all 13 conferences have decided to postpone conference play to the spring.

With this news, two Kentucky schools in the OVC – Eastern Kentucky and Murray State – will be allowed to take the field this fall.

EKU is currently scheduled to take on West Virginia in Morgantown on Sept. 12, while Murray State is set to take on Louisville on Sept. 19.

Outside of the Kentucky schools, UK was scheduled to play Eastern Illinois out of the OVC prior to the SEC’s decision to adopt a 10-game conference-only schedule this fall.
