Washington State and Eastern Washington both play the University of Idaho every year. Even before Idaho joined the Big Sky conference.

But 2012 was the last time WSU and Eastern played each other, despite being within 100 miles of each other. That will change this 2020-21 basketball season.

Eastern head coach Shantay Legans confirmed the information in a podcast from the Spokesman Review called the Press box Podcast with EWU’s football and basketball play-by-play broadcaster Larry Weir. The Eags and Cougs will face each other this season, and in 2021 and 2022.
