CHENEY -- The 2010 schedule for the Eastern Washington University football team is nearly complete, as a season-opening road game at Nevada will fill the 11th and final game on its schedule.

The schedule includes six home games, but whether five or six of them take place at Woodward Field has yet to be determined.

In playing at Nevada, the Eagles will take-on its former Big Sky Conference rival on Thursday, Sept. 2 in Reno. Eastern was originally going to open the season against Oregon State on Sept. 4, but that meeting was postponed to enable OSU the opportunity to play Texas Christian that same weekend at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Chaves said the Central Washington game on September 11th may be played at Qwest Field in Seattle, but that has not been finalized yet as both schools are continuing to work out details.

If the Central game is moved to Seattle, Eastern's home opener at Woodward Field will be Sept. 18 when 12-time defending Big Sky Conference champion Montana visits.

Chaves said the Oregon State game is now scheduled for August 31, 2013, giving the Eagles three-straight games against Pacific 10 Conference foes from 2011-2013. Eastern is scheduled play at Washington on Sept. 3, 2011, and Washington State on Sept. 8, 2012. Eastern also has a contract in place to play at Western Athletic Conference member and former Big Sky rival Idaho on Sept. 1, 2012.
