Eastern Washington football gear arrives late to Frisco

The Eastern Washington University football team made it to Frisco, Texas for the National Championship game just fine. Their gear though, it didn't.

Their equipment took a detour though, forcing some changes to a tight schedule mandated by the NCAA. Sports Information Dave Cook said everything arrived around 9 a.m. and that everything is "all well now!"

With the late arrival of their football gear, instead of practicing Wednesday morning at Pizza Hut Park, the Eagles will practice late in the afternoon after a media luncheon and a team photo.

Eastern Washington will have another walkthough on Thursday afternoon, right before the FCS Award Finalists press conference. On Friday they'll have a pre-game meal at 4 o'clock local time. Kickoff to the game is at 6 (4 p.m. PT).

Here's to hoping that everything smooths out for the Eagles who are already the heavy underdog to the Delaware Blue Hens.
