EUREKA – Twelfth-year Eureka football head coach Kurt Barth announced a change to the Red Devils' 2020 schedule on Wednesday afternoon. Eureka will visit Bluffton for a 12:30 p.m. CT non-conference kickoff on Saturday, Sept. 26 in Bluffton, Ohio.

Eureka has never played Bluffton in football and will be playing an active Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference member for the first time since hosting Hanover on Sept. 18, 1999. The upcoming contest with Bluffton also represents Eureka's second road game in Ohio in program history, the first being the Red Devils' 1994 NAIA playoff game at Tiffin.

The upcoming matchup with the Beavers replaces Eureka's contest originally scheduled with MacMurray on Saturday, Sept. 12. That contest was canceled after MacMurray announced last month that the institution would be closing after the spring 2020 semester.
