The Mississippi Valley State Department of Athletics announces today that MVSU has added another game to its 2011 slate.  The addition of Murray State will give the Delta Devils 11 contests for the upcoming season and six home games for the program.

“We worked hard to find another contest for 2011 and we contacted a number of programs.  In the end, an agreement with Murray State worked out well for both schools,” said interim athletics director Donald Sims.

The Racers went 6-5 last season, opening the season losing their first three games before closing out the season winning their last three contests.  A member of the Ohio Valley Conference, this will be the first meeting between the Racers and the Delta Devils.
