MISSOULA – As the confetti rained down Saturday night and Eagle Nation celebrated a Big Sky Conference championship, a few fans watched the fun – and had some of their own. “Just like football, just like football” they chanted in the middle of Dahlberg Arena after Eastern defeated host Montana 69-65.

Eagles tackle altitude, Lumberjacks

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – After another close game, the Eastern Washington football team could use a breather today. It probably won’t happen. Not against a Northern Arizona team that has a good chance to return to the FCS playoffs, and certainly not in the thin air of Flagstaff, elevation 7,000 feet.

Four corners: Eastern Washington Eagles

COMING UP: Tonight vs. Sacramento State, 6; Saturday vs. Northern Arizona, 2 p.m. OUTLOOK: Despite a road breakthrough at Montana State last week, the Eagles (11-13 overall, 5-7 Big Sky) must defend home court against two teams ahead of them. And defending home court could come down to defending the 3-point shot. First up is Sac State (10-11, 6-6), one of the Sky’s better long-range shooting teams (37.6 percent) and the best at defending against it (conference opponents are shooting 33.7 percent). On Saturday, it’s NAU (10-12, 7-5) easily the league’s best 3-point shooting team (42.9 percent). The Eagles foes are shooting 34 percent from the arc.

Four corners: Eastern Washington Eagles

COMING UP: Tonight at Northern Arizona, 6:05; Saturday at Sacramento State, 7:05 p.m. OUTLOOK: After winning two at home, the Eagles hope to steal one on the road. The Eagles (6-8 overall, 2-2 Big Sky) face a Lumberjacks team that’s coming off a 70-36 win at Southern Utah. NAU (6-9, 3-1) is shooting 52 percent from the field. The Eagles rank 23rd in Division I with 8.5 3-pointers made per game. At Sacramento State (5-8, 1-3), the Eagles may get some of their own medicine from Hornets guard Dylan Garrity, who ranks 11th in the nation in 3-point accuracy at 47.2 percent. Eastern backup forward Ognjen Miljkovic is practicing this week as he recovers from a high ankle sprain.
