Tough 'road' ahead for veteran Western Illinois squad

(STATS) - With 18 returning starters, Western Illinois has reason to look forward to its 11-game 2017 schedule that was announced Tuesday.

However, with a matchup against Coastal Carolina moved from Macomb to the site of the new FBS program, the Leathernecks will play only four home games at Hanson Field in coach Charlie Fisher's second season.

They finished 6-5, including 3-5 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, in his first season.
