This is a 1* free play on Morehead State. It's Senior Night at Morehead State, the final game of its home portion of its 2012-13 schedule. This is in fact a double revenge situation for the home side. In last year's setback the Eagles actually held the lead with four minutes left when the Racers were 18-0 and ranked nationally. These teams are very evenly matched, a sentiment shared by the oddsmakers. The difference is the significant external motivating factors working in favor of the home side!
