Tonight, the Eagles begin their quest for a fourth straight Big Sky Conference title. Here's my preview of the game from Sacramento, and in case you missed it, the replay from Thursday's live chat. ... Also, here's a preview of tonight's game from EWU sports information director Dave Cook. ... What the heck, there's nothing in the local Sacramento Bee in today's paper (apparently they care a lot more about the 49ers, A's and Giants), so here's a game preview from Sacramento State. ... Elsewhere in the Big Sky, Cal Poly visits Montana State in a matchup of teams that I picked to finished second and third (behind EWU) in the Big Sky.Here is a preview from the Tribune in San Luis Obispo, California, and another from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. The Chronicle also has this feature on MSU quarterback Dakota Prukop, who had a pretty good game last week in Cheney. ... Idaho State faces another big challenge today, as if the injury-plagued Bengals haven't had enough already. ... Montana is another team that needs to bounce back; the Griz face NAU today, and the Missoulian has this preview.
