Due to delays in the installation of a new synthetic turf at Truman State University, Missouri S&T and Truman State will play the Aug. 28 season opener at Central Methodist University in Fayette, Mo.
The game will start at 7 p.m., at Davis Field on the Central Methodist campus. The game could not be played at Truman’s Stokes Stadium as construction delays will not allow for the completion of the project in time for the scheduled date of the contest.

Tickets for the game will be $5 and will be available at the gate beginning one hour prior to game time.
This will be the second straight season in which the Miners and Bulldogs will open their season against one another. Truman State edged S&T 38-31 in last year’s opener at Allgood-Bailey Stadium. It will also mark a homecoming for S&T offensive coordinator Josh Richards, who was the starting quarterback at Central Methodist when he played collegiately for the Eagles.
From Rolla, take U.S. 63 north to Columbia, then take Interstate 70 West to Missouri Route 240 (Exit 121). Take that road for a little over nine miles until reaching the Central Methodist campus.
The football field is located off of Mulberry St. on the east side of campus. From Route 240, turn right onto East Spring St., then turn left onto Mulberry. The field will be located on the right side of the street just past the main campus.
