Big Sky notebook: Aggies get best player back for EWU

Just in time for Eastern Washington, the UC Davis Aggies have their best player back at full speed. Running back Gabe Manzanares, the Big Sky Conference Newcomer of the Year last season, is finally recovered from a foot injury suffered last spring. Second-year Aggies coach Ron Gould couldn’t be happier as his team opens conference play Saturday night against second-ranked Eastern Washington.

EWU’s O-line earning top marks

Classes begin today at Eastern Washington University, where the football team’s offensive line just aced another pop quiz. For the fourth time in as many games, the line paved the way for 500-plus yards of total offense in a 52-51 win Saturday at Montana State. They looked even better on film, which assistant coach Aaron Best said graded out among the highest in his 18 years with the team.

More fun times for Eagles

BOZEMAN – As Vernon Adams likes to say, this game is supposed to be fun. And so it was Saturday afternoon – even with 1:55 to play, the Eagles down by seven and needing to go 73 yards against a feisty Montana State team backed by 19,377 fans and half that many cowbells.

Forte has big day in Eastern’s win

BOZEMAN – After one of the biggest days of his college career, it was almost unfair that Eastern Washington running back Quincy Forte was consigned to the sidelines at the end of the Eagles’ 52-51 win at Montana State. Midway through the fourth quarter, Forte picked up 7 yards on a first-down play, but his stomach landed squarely on the football and he was helped from the field.

Eastern Washington tops Montana State in Big Sky shootout

BOZEMAN – As the fourth quarter began Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Stadium, the fans broke into a chant. “Rock this House,” the overflow crowd of 19,377 roared with expectation as Montana State carried a seven-point lead into the home stretch against second-ranked Eastern Washington.

Big Sky football: North Dakota State powers past Montana

John Crockett ran 28 times for 144 yards and top-ranked and defending champion North Dakota State (4-0) posted a 22-10 victory over the Montana Grizzlies (2-2) in Fargo, North Dakota. Carson Wentz was 16 of 24 for 167 yards for the Bison and threw to Kevin Vaadeland for a 3-yard TD for North Dakota State’s only touchdown.

Eagles win with 2-point conversion

Mario Brown scored on a 1-yard run with 27 seconds left and quarterback Vernon Adams ran in the two-point conversion to lift Eastern Washington to a 52-51 victory over Montana State on Saturday.

EWU’s nonconference game with MSU still full of meaning

BOZEMAN – That’s funny, this doesn’t feel like a nonconference game, and it probably never will. As they warmed up at Bobcat Stadium on a pleasant Friday afternoon, the Eastern Washington players also warmed to the subject of a rivalry with Montana State that’s among the biggest in the Big Sky Conference.

EWU’s Jake Miller has big leg, but aims for placement

For four years, Eastern Washington punter Jake Miller has heard the cheers, the sighs and everything in between – sometimes on the same play. Booming kicks that take a bad bounce into the end zone … a coverage breakdown … a capricious wind that carries the ball out of bounds.

With target on their backs, No. 2 Eagles expect tough game at No. 14 Montana State

By all accounts, the Eastern Washington football players and coaches put last week’s bye to good use. The Eagles got healthy and got in some extra time in the weight room and the film room. They also gained some perspective, something that doesn’t always come easily when you’re the No. 2 team in the land.

Big Sky conference roundup – Montana State beats Central Arkansas
