Following the program's best conference finish in the previous 10 seasons, the Morehead State football program continues to be favored as one of the Pioneer Football League's upper echelon teams.
In a poll of the league's head coaches, the Eagles have been tabbed for fourth in 2016.
The Eagles finished 7-4 and 6-2 in the league in 2015, narrowly missing first place and a berth in the FCS playoffs by just one loss. Morehead State returns five primary starters on both sides of the ball. The Preseason PFL Teams will be announced Tuesday.
