According to https://goracers.com/documents/2022/8/15/PDF_Schedule_Template_FB_23.pdf, it looks like the game against SE Louisiana is either rescheduled or cancelled. Otherwise, they have no off week.
Thanks, appears that was an OVC-Southland alliance game that had to be axed due to Murray State moving to MVFC.
