Decade in review: Eastern Washington athletics turned a corner in the 2010s

The 2010s saw Eastern Washington’s football program thrust itself into the Football Championship Subdivision’s elite. Six playoff berths. Five semifinal appearances. Two national title games. Several future NFL and Canadian Football players and a rare, iconic red field were a big part of the run. Its men’s basketball program was competitive, too, totaling four winning seasons, three Big Sky Conference Tournament title game appearances and a ticket to the Big Dance in 2015.
