Kennesaw State is back in town on Friday night as the Emory Eagles will visit the Owls Nest for a divisional matchup with the #19 ranked Owls. Kennesaw looks to make it three straight victories against their cross town rivals; the last two games between the schools have been decided by a combined four goals, including a triple overtime victory last year for the Owls at Emory.

Kennesaw comes into the game on a three game winning streak, which included wins against two ranked teams and all coming on the road.

The team is hoping for a boost from some players coming back from injury, including star attack man Brad Jones, who has been hampered by a hamstring injury since the Dayton game. The team will also welcome back Coach Anthony Grizanti on the sideline after taking a one game hiatus due to scheduling issues.

The Owls are excited to be back at the Owls Nest and look to impress a large crowd, which is expected to be in attendance.

Festivities for the evening include a pre-game tailgate hosted by the KSU Sports Management Department. Free food, raffles, door prizes, and a DJ will be included in the pre-game party that will precede the game; with local restaurants, Bullfrogz, Wing Zone, and Olive Garden participating in the event.

Fans are encouraged to arrive at 5:30pm for free food and entertainment, with the opening face-off taking place at 7:00 pm.
