(PRESS RELEASE/Eastern Washington University)
Big Sky Conference announces plans to move to eight-game spring schedule with fall non-conference games pending further review…
In the latest decision in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Big Sky Conference announced Friday (Aug. 7) that all league schools – including Eastern Washington University — will move to an eight-game schedule in early 2021. Presumably, the schedule could start as early as February.
The league’s athletic directors reached that decision on Wednesday, and it was approved by the Big Sky’s Presidents’ Council on Thursday.
Non-conference play for the conference’s football programs is still pending further review. Eastern has home non-conference games scheduled on Sept. 12 versus Western Illinois and Sept. 19 against Northern Arizona, and will be working with those schools to re-schedule as a result of the Big Sky’s decision.
