Starting with the 2018 season, the longstanding football rivalry between Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois will be deemed "War for the Wheel." The non-conference rivals, separated by just 45 miles, meet in Carbondale on Sept. 15 at 6 p.m. 

Each year, the winner of the game will take home an authentic ship's wheel to its side of the Mississippi River and proudly display it until the next scheduled matchup. The wheel currently resides in Carbondale since SIU won last year's meeting between the teams.
