Eastern announces 2013 football dates at Toledo, Oregon State

Eagles plays 12-game regular season for first time

FROM NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

The Eastern Washington University football team will play its first 12-game regular season in school history when the Eagles visit the University of Toledo on Sept. 14, 2013. The Eagles have never played the University of Toledo, nor a team from the Mid-American Conference.

“The opportunity to play 12 games gives us the chance to play a team such as Toledo,” Eastern athletic director Bill Chaves said. “In the way the Big Sky Conference schedule broke for us we had a number of open dates in September, and when this game presented itself, we took advantage of it.”

Eastern will open the 2013 season at Oregon State Aug. 31, then host Western Oregon at Roos Field Sept. 7. Following the Toledo game, Eastern will play its final non-league game at Sam Houston State Sept. 28 before opening league play versus Weber State Oct. 5.
