More about the 2014 EWU Football Schedule...

Featuring the ESPN FCS Showcase to open the 2014 college football season, Eastern’s 2014 schedule includes six home games and six on the road.

The schedule includes two August home dates – Aug. 23 versus Sam Houston State and Aug. 30 versus Montana Western. The Bearkats ranked 14th in the final Sports Network NCAA Football Championship Subdivision poll, and closed the year 9-5 overall and 4-3 in the Southland Conference. Sam Houston State’s new head coach is K.C. Keeler, who was the head coach at Delaware when Eastern beat the Blue Hens 20-19 for the 2010 NCAA Division I Championship.

The Bulldogs are a member of the NAIA and the Frontier Conference, and finished 4-6 last season. Montana Western is located in Dillon, Mont.

Following that homestand, the Eagles play at Washington in Seattle on Sept. 6 in a rematch of a 2011 game in which EWU’s upset bid came up just short in a 30-27 loss. The new coach for the Huskies is Chris Petersen, and among his assistants are former Eagle coaches Jimmy Lake (also a former Eagle player), Rich Rasmussen and Pete Kwiatkowski. Washington finished 9-4 overall and 5-4 in the Pac-12 Conference a year ago, and defeated BYU 31-16 in the Fight Hunger Bowl.

Following that game, the Eagles close their non-conference schedule on Saturday, Sept. 20 against Montana State in Bozeman, Mont. As part of the league’s expansion in 2012, only Montana and Portland State will be on EWU’s schedule annually, and the six remaining league games are played on a rotating basis with the other 10 Big Sky teams. Thus, the Eagles will play non-league games the next two years versus MSU, which finished the 2013 season 7-5 overall and 5-3 in the Big Sky.

Eastern’s 2014 Big Sky schedule begins on Sept. 27 at UC Davis, and the team’s home league opener is Oct. 4 versus Idaho State and former Eastern head coach Mike Kramer.
