All certainly not lost for Eastern

PHOENIX – Hopefully the flight back from Arizona gave the Eastern Washington players and coaches a chance to appreciate the big picture.

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.

Eagles take on upset-minded NAU

Big Sky notes: NAU running game ‘work in progress’

Northern Arizona’s running game is still a “work in progress,” coach Jerome Souers said Wednesday as the Lumberjacks prepared for Saturday’s home game against second-ranked Eastern Washington.

Young Eagles defense beginning to hit stride

Perhaps a few Eastern Washington football fans are guilty of judging a book by its cover, coach Beau Baldwin says. That book would be the story of this year’s Eagle defense, which added a few plot twists in a 26-18 win Saturday over Northern Colorado: stout run defense, seven sacks and a new attitude of aggressiveness.

Even if the final score was plain-vanilla, the Eastern Washington coaches added a few delicious toppings to the Eagles’ 26-18 win over Northern Colorado on Saturday. With the underdog Bears playing their customary stingy defense, the Eagles scored on a fake field goal and set up another on a Statue of Liberty play – and those plays may have been the difference in helping Eastern avoid a stunning upset on its own field.
