We're back with a second blog tonight with our second to last Know Your Opponent segment. This week's opponent is Tennessee State. Before we take a quick look at the Historically Black University, we recap some other news from tonight.

EIU women's soccer had four players earn All-OVC honors. Kaylin Lorbert was a first team selection.

Men's soccer lost at Valparaiso. The Panthers play their final regular-season contest on Saturday at 2 p.m. against Drake.

Now for Know Your Opponent - Tennessee State.

2.) The school was opened in 1909 as the Tennessee Agricultural and Industrial School

3.) TSU has several famous alumni among them are Oprah Winfrey, Wilma Rudolph, Ed "Too Tall" Jones and Richard Dent just to name a few.
