EASTERN WASHINGTON at NORTHERN COLORADO BEARS
What: The Eagles head to the Centennial State to face the Bears.
When: Saturday, November 3 at 2:05 p.m.
Where: Nottingham Field; Greeley, Colorado.
Television: Root Sports.
Radio Stream: 700 ESPN.
2018 Records: Eagles 6-2 (4-1 Big Sky); Bears 2-7 (2-4 Big Sky).
Head Coaches (overall as HC): Eagles - Aaron Best (12-6); Bears - Earnest Collins, Jr. (26-60).
2017: These teams did not meet during the 2017 season.
Eagles Notes: The Eagles are poised to return to the Division I-AA playoffs after having missed the post-season last year. Winning two of their last three ought to do the trick, but winning all three would give them some momentum heading into the playoffs. Quarterback Eric Barriere was outstanding in the Eagles' 38-14 home win over Idaho last week. He completed 29 of 42 passes for 326 yards with a trio of touchdowns, while rushing 12 times for 70 yards and a touchdown. Henderson Belk and Terence Grady each caught touchdown passes in the win. Belk had three catches for 78 yards and Grady had a pair of receptions for 72 yards. Nsimba Webster added seven receptions for 62 yards.
Bears Notes: The Bears have had a rough season, but are winners of two straight (42-14 over Northern Arizona in week 8 and 42-39 over Southern Utah in week 9). The Bears will look to continue the momentum in their final home game of the season. Junior running back Milo Hall rushed for three touchdowns in the win over Southern Utah. He gained 128 yards off of 21 carries. Trae Riek was impressive on the ground as well, rushing 11 times for 118 yards. Keaton Mott completed 12 of 24 yards for 224 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Alex Wesley has a team-high six catches for 96 yards.

UCLA BRUINS at OREGON DUCKS
What: The Ducks welcome the Bruins from Southern California.
When: Saturday, November 3 at 4:30 p.m.
Where: Autzen Stadium; Eugene, Oregon.
Radio Stream: 750 The Game.
2018 Records: Bruins - 2-6 (2-3 Pac-12 South); Ducks - 5-3 (2-3 Pac-12).
Head Coaches (overall as HC): Bruins - Chip Kelly (48-13); Ducks - Mario Cristobal (30-51).
2017: The Bruins defeated the Ducks, 31-14, at Los Angeles.
Bruins Notes: This marks Chip Kelly's first trip to Eugene as a head coach after he departed for the NFL following the 2012 season. In four seasons at the helm of the Ducks, he led the team to four bowl games, including the National Championship game at the end of the 2010 season. Kelly is in his first season as head coach of the Bruins. That season has seen its share of struggles, including the Bruins' 41-10 loss to Utah last week. Wilton Speight went 20 of 40 for 164 and two picks in the loss. Hoshua Kelley led the ground attack, gaining 90 yards on 16 carries with the team's lone touchdown. Caleb Wilson contributed five receptions for 62 yards, and Theo Howard added six catches for 51 yards.
Ducks Notes: The Ducks are on their third head coach since Kelly's departure. Mario Cristobal's first season at Oregon has seen its ups and downs. One of those downs came last week at Arizona as the Wildcats handed the Ducks their third loss of the season by a 44-15 tally. Justin Herbert, who has been solid for much of the season, struggled a bit in the loss, hitting 24 of 48 passes for 186 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception. Herbert led all Oregon rushers with 31 yards off six carries. Dillon Mitchell had six grabs for 69 yards and a touchdown for the Ducks, while Jacob Breeland added four receptions for 34 yards. Brendan Schooler caught a touchdown pass in the loss. One more win and the Ducks become bowl-eligible.

STANFORD CARDINAL at WASHINGTON HUSKIES
What: The Cardinal face one of their toughest tests of the season as they face the Huskies on the road.
When: Saturday, November 3 at 6 p.m.
Where: Husky Stadium; Seattle, Washington.
Television: Pac-12 Networks.
Radio Stream: Cardinal Sports Network.
2018 Records: Cardinal 5-3 (3-2 Pac-12 North); Huskies 6-3 (4-2 Pac-12 North).
Head Coaches (overall as HC): Cardinal - David Shaw (78-25). Huskies - Chris Peterson (43-20)
2017: The Cardinal defeated the Huskies, 30-22, at Palo Alto.
Cardinal Notes: With running back Bryce Love being hampered by an ankle injury for much of the season, the Cardinal have become a pass-heavy offense. Love left last week's game against Washington St. in the second half and it is unsure whether he will play in this one. The Cardinal need just one win to earn a trip to a bowl game this season. K.J. Costello leads a talented offense. He was 34 of 43 for 323 yards and four touchdowns in the Cardinal's 41-38 loss to the Cougars. Without Love, it will be up to Trevor Speights and CAmeron Scarlett to pick up the slack in the running game. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who had 10 receptions for 111 yards with a pair of touchdowns in the loss, is one of the Pac-12's most dynamic big-play receivers. Tight end Kaden Smith caught nine passes for 12 yards and a touchdown for Stanford in the game.
Huskies: It's Salute to Service in Seattle as the Huskies host the Cardinal. Washington is licking its wounds after being stifled last week by Cal's defense and falling to the Golden Bears, 12-10. The Huskies will be hungry for a win and to get back on track. If they should win out in Pac-12 play, including defeating Washington St. at Pullman in the regular season finale, would give them the Pac-12 North title. Jake Browning will start after being benched in the middle of the loss to Cal. Browning was 11 of 21 for 148 yards with a touchdown and a pick against the Golden Bears. Kamari Pleasant rushed 12 times for 62 yards in the game. Ty Jones caught three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown, while Andre Baccallia added four grabs for 40 yards..

IDAHO ST. BENGALS at PORTLAND ST. VIKINGS
What: The Vikings host the Bengals from southeastern Idaho.
When: Saturday, November 3 at 7:05 p.m.
Where: Hillsboro Stadium; Hillsboro, Oregon.
Radio Stream: Rip City Radio 620.
2018 Records: Bengals 4-1 (5-3); Vikings 4-4 (3-2 Big Sky).
Head Coaches (overall as HC): Rob Phenicie (8-9); Vikings - Bruce Barnum (16-26).
2017: Bengals won, 59-30, in Pocatello.
Bengals Notes: The Bengals are primed for a post-season appearance, but they will likely have to win out, starting with this one in the Rose City. They also visit Cal Poly and host Weber St. to close out the season. They'll look to start their stretch run against the Vikings. Tanner Gueller went 18 of 29 for 218 yards and two touchdowns as the Bengals fended off Montana St. last week. His brother, Mitch Gueller, caught three of those balls for 62 yards, while Jrue Perkins and Austin Campbell each caught a touchdown pass. James Madison rushed 21 times for 87 yards and a touchdown in the win for the Bengals.
Vikings Notes: Aside from UC Davis, the Vikings are the hottest team in the Big Sky Conference. They are winners of three straight; the first of which was a dramatic 22-20 win over Montana. Even if they win out, the Vikings are unlikely to earn a playoff spot. On the other hand, coming in at 4-4 overall is a far cry from their 0-11 record of a year ago, and have a chance to post a winning record this season. Jalani Eason was exceptional in the Vikings' 41-14 win over Sacramento St. last week; rushing for 165 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the win. Darian Green rushed for a score, while Matalo Tatalemotu had three grabs for 143 yards and a touchdown.

BRIGHAM YOUNG COUGARS at BOISE ST. BRONCOS
What: The Broncos are at home to meet the Cougars.
When: Satrurday, November 3 at 7:15 p.m.
Where: Albertson's Stadium; Boise, Idaho.
Radio Stream: KBOI.
2018 Records: Cougars 4-4 (no conference affiliation); Broncos 6-2 (4-1 Mountain West).
Head Coaches (overall as HC): Kalani Sitake (17-17); Broncos - Bryan Harsin (55-18).
2017: The Broncos defeated the Cougars, 24-7, at Provo.
Cougars Notes: The Cougars are in the hunt for a bowl game. At 4-4, they need two more wins on the season to become bowl eligible. This visit to Boise is one of four opportunities to get those two wins. They visit Massachusetts and host New Mexico St. before closing out their season on the road against Utah. The Cougars are coming off a 7-6 loss at the hands of Northern Illinois in Provo. Zach Wilson went 18 of 30 for 2018 yards and an interception in the loss. Matt Hadley rushed nine times for 38 yards in the effort. Matt Bushman and Talon Shumway each caught three passes, for 63 and 62 yards, respectively.
Broncos Notes: The Broncos are in a prime position for an upper tier bowl game. Sweeping their final four games could put them right there. However, beyond this one, they will face 7-1 Fresno St. (4-0 in the Mountain West-West Division) in week 11. The Broncos have won three straight, and would look forward to facing the Wildcats following a win here. Brett Rypien three for five touchdowns while completing 20 of 34 pases for 399 yards in the Broncos' 48-38 win at Air Force last week. Alexander Mattison gained 135 yards on 22 carries with a touchdown. John Hightower hauled in eight passes for 182 yards and three touchdowns. Sean Modster added six receptions for 101 yards in the win.

CALIFORNIA GOLDEN BEARS at WASHINGTON ST. COUGARS
What: The Golden Bears head to eastern Washington to battle the Cougars.
When: Saturday, November 3 at 7:45 p.m.
Where: Martin Stadium; Pullman, Washington.
Radio Stream: KGO 810.
2018 Records: Golden Bears 5-3 (2-3 Pac-12 North); Cougars 7-1 (4-1 Pac-12 North).
Head Coaches (overall as HC): Golden Bears - Justin Wilcox (10-10); Cougars - Mike Leach (129-82).
2017: The Golden Bears defeated the Cougars, 37-3, at Berkeley.
Golden Bears Notes: The Golden Bears pulled off the shocker of last weekend when they they turned up the defensive pressure in a 12-10 win over visiting Washington. Cal's win over the Cougars last season was even more of a shocker. Cal is now just a win away from earning a trip to a bowl game for the first time since 2015. Chase Garbers was effective in the win over the Huskies. He completed 16 of 23 passes for 153 yards. Patrick Laird has put together a nice season. He's nearly on pace for a 1,000-yard rushing season after having gained 83 yards on 22 carries against Washington. Vic Wharton III, who has moved from running back to wide receiver, caught five passes for 45 yards in the win over the Huskies.
Cougars Notes: With Washington's loss to Cal last week, the Cougars moved into sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 North. They'll look to continue their quest for a conference title against the Golden Bears in week 10. Gardner Minshew has become a phenomenon in Pullman, with fans donning faux mustaches to match his own. Minshew has been impressive all season, and completed 40 of 50 passes for 438 yards and three touchdowns in a 41-38 come-from-behind win at Stanford in week 9. Dezmon Patmon posted 10 receptions for 127 yards in the win, while Jamire Calvin added 3 catches for 102 yards. Running back James Williams caught nine passes for 79 yards, and rushed for two touchdowns in the win.
