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.
