CHENEY -- Eastern Washington defensive lineman Dylan Zylstra said the Eags are treating every game from here on out as if it's for the Big Sky title. Well, Saturday's visit from Montana State may actually serve as the Conference Championship.
A battle of Big Sky unbeatens is on tap this weekend. The Eags and Bobcats both stand at 5-0 in league games, outscoring their opponents in those contests by 19 or more on average.
Linebacker Ronnie Hamlin said he has been locked in on this game since their trip back from Idaho State. Beau Baldwin talks about being consistent in how they approach each opponent. To this point they have done that, with Baldwin referencing the Montana game as an example of how they played well in another highly-anticipated contest.
Saturday will make the first showdown of top-5 ranked teams in Big Sky play since 1994. Kickoff at 12:10 p.m. at Roos Field
