Weekly Press Conference Streaming Live Tuesday

Nov. 1, 2011

NORMAL, Ill. - Illinois State football head coach Brock Spack will preview his team's upcoming game against Missouri Valley Football Conference foe Western Illinois at the Illinois State Coaches Luncheon Tuesday, Nov. 1, at noon at the Kaufman Football Building.

After a 38-30 win over Southern Illinois last weekend, Illinois State (6-3, 4-2 MVFC) will look to knock off Western Illinois (2-6, 1-4 MVFC) when the Leathernecks come to Hancock Stadium for a pivotal Missouri Valley Football Conference match up.

Western Illinois leads the all-time series between the two teams 50-39-3. The Leathernecks have dominated the series of late, with wins in eight of the last 10 meetings against the Redbirds, but ISU will be trying to rebound after a 65-38 loss to the Leathernecks in Macomb, Ill., last season.

ISU junior linebacker Austin Davis and senior running back Cliffton Gordon will join the press conference and offer their insights on the game against the Leathernecks. Davis is a key component to the Redbird defense, as he has 42 total tackles, including 4.5 tackles-for-loss. Gordon has played in all nine games during the 2011 season and is the team's second-leading rusher with 269 yards and two touchdowns.

The live video can be seen on Redbird All-Access, the Illinois State Athletics Department's exclusive multimedia platform. The video will also be archived following the completion of the press conference and can then be viewed on-demand. Weekly programming schedules and complete Redbird All-Access information are also available online.
