Wheeler: Keith, another week down here in Cheney and
another win for Eastern Washington as they improve
The talk though this week on the red is all about
the turnover game.
Head coach Beau Baldwin us when the Eags win the turnover
battle, they're 34-0, a mark that dates back to 2010.
The focus ahead of this weekend's contest? Hang on
to the football.
That is the most important number so I can take away
the fact how big that is.
We've only had one turnover as an offense in the last
two games combined so we're doing a good job with
that, and I can take that away.
Every week he preaches we have to win the turnover
34-0 when we win the turnover battle.
When you look at the numbers, we haven't lost a game
when we win the turnover battle so as a player you
look at it and go okay, just have to take care of
the football no matter what.
It really sticks in your mind when you're out there
practicing and when you're out there playing as well.
Another tough test here on Saturday for Eastern Washington
as they welcome Northern Colorado here to Cheney.
The last two times the teams have played, it's been
just a 10-point contest so the Eags know they're going
to have their hands full on Homecoming, the 90th edition
here on Saturday.
Kickoff is set for just after 1.
