Big Sky notes: Despite record, Northern Colorado should give Eastern a test on Saturday

Besides four turnovers, Northern Colorado football coach Earnest Collins Jr. took away something even more important from the Bears’ season-opening 13-12 loss this year at UNLV. “We knew in that first game that we were on the right track,” said Collins, now in his fourth – and so far most successful – season at his alma mater.

Dakota Prukop passed for 361 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for 148 yards and two more scores to lead the Montana State Bobcats to a 77-37 win over the UC Davis Aggies on Saturday night in Davis, California.

Eagles return, knock off SUU

CEDAR CITY, Utah – Returning to the site of its last conference loss, Eastern Washington made sure history didn’t repeat itself. The Eagles shook off a slow start to pull away from Southern Utah in the second half and pick up a 42-30 road victory. Playing without junior quarterback Vernon Adams Jr., who is out for three to six weeks with broken bones in his foot, the EWU offense hardly skipped a beat, tallying 568 yards, as it was effective on the ground and through the air.

EWU’s Jordan West ready to take charge, step in for injured QB Vernon Adams

One team is 5-1 and the other 1-5, but Eastern Washington and Southern Utah have more in common than their feathered mascots and red-and-white uniforms. An unsettled quarterback situation, key injuries and vulnerable defenses are just some of the common denominators in today’s Big Sky Conference game in Cedar City, Utah.

Eagles’ Zackary Johnson found new home and position at EWU

Zackary Johnson had a lot on his plate one fine morning in the spring of 2012. After two years of toiling on the offensive line at Washington State, he still hadn’t played a down, and the new coaching staff seemed inclined to keep it that way.

Big Sky notes: Southern Utah puts faith in Olsen at QB

Even as Eastern Washington adjusts to a new quarterback this week, there’s no controversy: Vernon Adams is injured and backup Jordan West is stepping up. It wasn’t that simple last month for Southern Utah coach Ed Lamb, who found himself benching last year’s starting quarterback in favor of a transfer.

EWU coach Hayford sees program on upswing

The Eastern Washington basketball team is unburdened by expectations this season – high, low or in between. Coach Jim Hayford has experienced them all going into his fourth season in Cheney, which began Saturday with the first of 30 practices before the opener at Reese Court on Nov. 14 against Texas Southern.

Adams toughed it out

More than anything, it was Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams’ warrior mentality that kept him playing through pain last weekend. “That’s where his mindset was” at halftime of Saturday’s game against Idaho State, Eagles coach Beau Baldwin said Monday, a day after learning that Adams will miss three to six weeks with two broken bones in his right foot.

Eagles’ Adams out 3-6 weeks

If the Eastern Washington football team makes another deep run into the postseason, it will have to make part of the journey without quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. Adams will miss three to six weeks of action after breaking two bones in his right foot Saturday during the Eagles’ win over Idaho State, coach Beau Baldwin said Sunday.

Prukop completed 23 of 34 passes to 10 different receivers for 348 yards and five scores and added 140 yards rushing and three more touchdowns on 16 carries.

EWU-ISU notebook: Eagles lucky once again

Dylan Zylstra shares your concerns. So does the entire Eastern Washington defense, which for the third time in four games gave up 50-plus points and 500-plus yards Saturday in the Eagles’ 56-53 win over Idaho State.

Eastern not taking Idaho State lightly

Football is “making strides” at Idaho State, coach Mike Kramer will tell you. Last week’s three- touchdown win over Sacramento State “was a validation of how far we’ve come,” said Kramer, now in his fourth year rebuilding one of the most downtrodden programs in the Big Sky Conference.
