The first thing I did this morning was look out the window - no snow on the South Hill since Friday evening. That's just one of many factors that could play into today's semifinal between Eastern Washington and Towson. The winner will play North Dakota State - an easy winner Friday night over New Hampshire - in the FCS title game on Jan. 4. ... Don't know enough about today's game? There's plenty of info from Eastern and from Towson, and the Baltimore Sun.
