This game was played over two days. With SIU ahead, 7-0, in the first quarter on Saturday, September 9, the game was postponed by lightning and a torrential rainstorm that flooded the McAndrew Stadium playing field. The game resumed Sunday, September 10. WIU All-American LB Bryan Cox blocked a David Peters' punt for a touchdown in the third quarter, tying the game. The Leathernecks broke the tie in the fourth quarter on a 48-yard pass play and beat the Salukis for the sixth year in a row.
