OK football fans, when was the last time this much was riding on a college game played in these parts? That's right, the stakes are pretty big for today's Eastern-Montana State matchup, which likely will be decided on the lines. Here's my game preview, along with a look at the Eagles' recent success at the gate. Elsewhere, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle has a full package on the game, while the Billings Gazette offers a preview with the headline: "This one is big." ... The Great Fall Tribune weighs in with this story, while all the pre-game info you could want are contained in releases from Eastern and from Montana State. ... Elsewhere, Montana faces South Dakota with plenty on the line.
