Eastern Washington traveled to Seattle in hopes of flexing its FCS muscle. The FCS number 2 ranked Eagles much like 3-time FCS Champs North Dakota State are not afraid of playing the big boys. In fact, they welcome the opportunity to play against the FBS programs. This Saturday was not to be their day as the Huskies held off Eastern Washington in a high scoring event 59-52.
Washington QB Cyler Miles ran for three TDs added another on through the air as his Huskies withheld an offensive attack from Eastern Washington QB Vernon Adams Jr., who went 31 of 46 passes for 475 yards and 7 touchdown passes. Adams is most certainly a NCAA Football Zone Beat Mode of the Week candidate.
On deck for the Huskies is a September 13th date from Big 10 member Illinois.
