On Saturday, August 23, the preseason No. 1 ranked Eastern Washington Eagles will host the No. 17 Sam Houston State Bearkats in the inaugural Football Championship Subdivision Showcase at Roos Field in Cheney.

The Eagles return All-American junior quarterback Vernon Adams, who finished with 5,559 yards of total offense in 2013 and sophomore wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who won the Jerry Rice Award for best receiver in FCS in 2013.

It’s the fourth meeting between the squads, with Sam Houston State winning the first three games, including a 45-42 thriller in the 2012 FCS playoffs.

The highly anticipated match-up is the first college football game of the 2014-15 season.

Kick-off is set for 12:35 p.m. on Saturday at “The Inferno” and will be televised live on ESPN.
