So how is the new group of Eastern Washington receivers faring this fall? Just fine, thanks in part to the leadership of senior captain Ashton Clark. Here's my profile of Clark, the Eagles' leading receiver this season. I'm working on a few other pieces before I fly out early Friday morning to Huntsville, Texas, for the big game at Sam Houston State. We can talk about all that and more during Thursday's live chat, but until then, here are a few more links:
Next up for Eastern after Sam Houston is Weber State, which is at home against Sacramento State after three straight lopsided losses. ... UC Davis is still looking for its first win, and hopes to get it this week against Idaho State.... It's a tough stretch for North Dakota, which was thrashed last week by Montana, and now faces Montana State and Eastern Washington two weeks after that. ... Meanwhile, Southern Utah is a surprising 3-1 heading into its conference opener at Northern Colorado. ... The best conference game this week could be Montana at Northern Arizona; both teams are ranked in this week's FCS poll.
