After starting the season with no hopes due to NCAA sanctions, the Eastern Washington Eagles are now in the postseason. How bout them apples?
Hope became a reality for the Eastern Washington University football team as they were selected Sunday (Nov. 22) as one of 16 teams in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs, and will play at Stephen F. Austin next Saturday (Nov. 28).
Located in Nacogdoches, Texas, SFA is 9-2 and won a share of the Southland Conference title by edging Northwestern State 19-10 last Saturday. The Lumberjacks defeated co-champion McNeese State 16-13 back on Oct. 10 to break the tie and earn them the league's automatic berth.
All I can say is... awesome.
