ATHENS, W.Va. - The weather forecast for Saturday’s Concord football game against Seton Hill calls for sunny skies and a seasonal high temperature in the low 60s. Perfect weather for a blackout.

The game between the Mountain Lions and SHU on Saturday, Oct. 15, is designated as a “Blackout Game.” All Concord fans are encouraged to wear black to the contest, which kicks off at 1 p.m. at Callaghan Stadium.

For fans who don’t have black to wear, Concord’s Student Athlete Advisory Council will have a limited number of “blackout” T-shirts for sale. The cost is $7 for a short-sleeve shirt and $10 for a long-sleeve shirt. The shirts will be available while supplies last.

What’s more, Concord’s softball team will be selling adhesive “eyeblack” face stickers at the gate on Saturday. The stickers are $2 a pair. The “eyeblack” stickers will also be available at the volleyball team’s home matches this week. The Lady Lions host Mountain State at 7 p.m. Thursday night and Glenville State at 1 p.m. Friday afternoon.

At 3-1 in the WVIAC, the Concord football team is in the running for a berth in the NCAA playoffs. Saturday’s game against the Griffins will be CU’s last home game until the regular-season finale against West Virginia Wesleyan on Nov. 12.
