Defense keys EWU win over Weber

Eagles roll over Wildcats 41-19 to open Big Sky Conference play


On paper and the scoreboard - the obvious numbers that mattered - offense appeared to rule the day in Eastern Washington’s 41-19 Big Sky Conference football victory last Saturday over Weber State at Roos Field.

But Eagles head coach Beau Baldwin was quick to point out that it was really the defense that provided the springboard to the win.
