Saturday’s VMI-The Citadel football game sold out
The 15th-ranked Keydets (5-1, 5-1 SoCon) have a chance to clinch the program’s first conference championship since 1977 with a win over the Bulldogs (2-5, 1-3 SoCon).
The SoCon title would also bring with it the conference’s automatic berth in the 2021 FCS playoffs.
VMI has never participated in the FCS playoffs since reclassifying to I-AA status in 1982.
Mercer (5-5, 5-2 SoCon) is still in the running for the conference title and playoff berth after its 21-13 upset of ETSU over the weekend.
Mercer faces faces Samford (3-3, 3-3 SoCon) on Saturday.
The Commonwealth of Virginia’s Executive Order #72 set the capacity of Foster Stadium to 30 percent of total occupancy, or 3,000 individuals. This left a limited number of tickets available to purchase.

The game can be seen on ESPN+ or in select SoCon markets as part of the Nexstar Game of the Week. In the Lexington/Roanoke/Lynchburg market, the VMI-The Citadel game will be carried on WWCW.
Airtime will be 1:30 pm.
