Eastern Washington football will appear on four ROOT sports telecasts this fall, the Big Sky Conference announced Monday.

Idaho will appear three times in its return to the Big Sky, including the Vandals’ Oct. 27 game at EWU, as part of a 10-game schedule.

Other EWU games on the ROOT schedule include a Sept. 29 date at Montana State, a home game the next week against defending champion Southern Utah and the regular-season finale at Portland State on Nov. 16 or 17.

ROOT also plans to show Idaho’s Oct. 13 contest at Montana State and the Vandals’ Nov. 10 home game against Montana.

Game times will be determined later.

Eastern’s four appearances match Montana and MSU for the most in the conference. Weber State and Southern Utah, last year’s co-champions, will be televised just once each.

The 2018 season marks the seventh year of a partnership between Root and the Big Sky.
