CHENEY -- Eastern Washington wide receiver Ashton Clark says his team is treating Saturday's appearance like any other game, and another opportunity to get another Big Sky win. But there is no masking the significance of their trip to Missoula.

The Eagles visit No. 10 Montana, in the latest of a series of high stakes matchups between the programs. For the fifth straight year both teams are ranked heading into the meeting. During that span the loser of the contest has never claimed a share of the Big Sky title.

Beau Baldwin's team is tied for first place at 3-0 with Montana State. The Grizzlies are 3-1.

In 2012 EWU scored two touchdowns in the final minutes to score a 32-26 win.

Kickoff Saturday is at 12:40 p.m. at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
