Leaving no doubt!

They certainly left little doubt.

OK, ¬¬maybe just a little, in the game's opening eight minutes?

But overall - without a doubt from the second time they touched the ball on offense - Eastern Washington's 59-20 win delivered a Big Sky Conference body slam to the University of California-Davis Aggies Nov. 10 at Roos Field.

The result certainly sent a message. "That's a very good football team," UCD head coach Dan Hawkins told The Davis Enterprise. And hopefully it also sent one to the rest of the Football Championship Subdivision teams - and the playoff committee.

A year ago at this time, Eastern knew they were likely a longshot for the playoffs. Finishing strong with a pair of wins for a 7-4 record, the Eagles trusted that their postseason pedigree -conference championships in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016 - SHOULD let them in the back door to the playoffs.

The committee, however, took Northern Arizona with the same 7-4 record.
