CSN West

Villanova @ Eastern Washington

Rate this Entry
I am getting ready for this game. First off, the weather looks pretty good in Cheney for a mid-December night with the temps right at the freezing mark. Matt Szcur and Villanova just knocked off top seeded Appalachian State last weekand now will look to knock off the top ranked (at least in one poll) Eastern Washington. The Eagles are the fifth seed.

The Eagles will need to win without All-American Taiwan Jones after breaking his foot in the OT win over NDSU last week.

We shall see how that plays out.

I am looking for a closer game than most expect but without Jones, I would think the Wildcats have the advantage.

Eastern Washington is looking for their first trip to the championship game but with a win, their conference of the Big Sky would be going to the game for the third straight year. Montana went and lost the last two title contests.

We shall see though on the red turf in the Inferno.

    Ball converts another 3rd down play (3rd & 1) to the EWU 24.

    Whitney is picked off by safety Jeff Minnerly. The ball was clearly overthrown by Whitney. EWU starts at their own 16.

    EWU is facing a 3rd & 7 at the 19 after a three yard Brown run and an incompletion.

    Mitchell throws it away on 3rd down. Szczur is out of the game for the punt. EWU punts and is fair caught at the VU 46.

    I would have thought the Eagles might have tried to pound the ball on this last possession to run the clock a little more but they throw two incompletions.

    Whitney lucky on 2nd down play as the Eagles tipped his pass. 3rd & 7 for the Wildcats. Whitney throws it away on the 3rd down play.

    VU is punting and EWU's Alante Wright appears to fumble it. The officials say it is EWU ball. This play will go under review. It looks like it should be Villanova ball after seeing the replays.

    The call on the field is overturned and it will be VU ball at the EWU 14.

    Reynolds takes the option pitch and gets down to the 3.

    1st & goal gets just a yard from a Whitney keeper but on the 2nd down play Whitney scores from two yards out. EWU 34 VU 31 with 7:08 left in the game.

    This game looks like it will go down to the wire. It might be which ever team can hang on to the ball with the number of turnovers we have seen thus far.

    EWU's Jesse Hoffman gets the Eagles with good field possession--getting out to their own 37.

    Brown with a big run on the first down play of nearly 10 yards--they will measure to see if it was 10 and it was. 1st & 10 EWU at their own 47.

    Brown for another six on the next play. 2nd & 4

    Beaumonte losses two on 2nd down. 3rd & 6 for EWU and Kaufman catches the Mitchell pass for a 1st down now at the VU 39.

    Brown for a 1 yard loss on 1st down but Kaufman gets 7 on the 2nd down play to set up a 3rd & 4. TO Villanova with 3:25 left.

    Mitchell goes long on the 3rd down play. This will be an interesting 4th down play at the VU 33.

    They are going for it and Hart with a catch right at the marker. Good spot gains EWU the 1st down. They will review the play to see if video will show the spot.

    Looking at the replay, his forward progress appears to be right at the marker. It will be tough to overturn the call in my opinion.

    They keep the play as called as I thought. It is 1st & 10 at the 28. We are at 2:40 and counting on the game clock.
