If you are one of those people who live by the calendar in your Blackberry, then get ready to set it and spend the weekend on EIU's campus for a home weekend full of sports.
The Panthers will have four different sports teams at home this weekend while a handful of others will have road action. To read a preview about your favorite Panther sports team check out www.eiupanthers.com and click on your favorite.
The home slate begins at 4 p.m. on Friday with women's soccer sitting at 2-3-1 on the season hosting Belmont at Lakeside Field. Just about the time the first half is wrapping up the EIU cross country team will start the EIU Panther Invite with the women running a 5K at 4:45 p.m. and the men running an 8K at 5:30 p.m.
On Saturday New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton will be on campus for the Panthers home opener against Central Arkansas. Game time is 1:30 p.m. and you can purchase tickets at the gate or in advance by calling 217-581-2106.
On Sunday the home weekend wraps up with women's soccer at 1 p.m. at Lakeside Field. As that match is ending the women's rugby team will look to make it 28 straight wins when they host Notre Dame at 3 p.m.
Hope to see you on campus wearing the Blue and White.
