Eastern falls to tough Weber St. team in Cheney

Saturday's home game against No. 21 Weber State is undoubtedly the biggest game of the year so far for Eastern Washington.  Weber State scored three times in the last 1:32 of the first half and went on to defeat Eastern Washington 31-13 in a Big Sky Conference football showdown Saturday (Oct. 10) at Woodward Field in Cheney, Wash.

The 14th-ranked Eagles were held to 170 yards of total offense in the first three quarters as they fell behind 25-7. But behind the arm of record-breaking quarterback Matt Nichols, the Eagles came to life in the final quarter to finish with 389 yards of offense. Nichols passed for 354, and in the process broke the school record for career passing yards held by the quarterback he replaced, Erik Meyer. Nichols now has 10,315 in his career while Meyer had 10,261 from 2002-05.  Click Here for full story>>>
