The Eagles (10-20, 7-12 Big Sky) play at Weber State (23-5, 17-2), winners of 10 straight, on Saturday at 6:05 p.m.

Also in contention is Southern Utah, Sacramento State and Northern Arizona. Out of three potential three-way tie scenarios, The Eagles hold the tiebreaker in two of them. In the event of a four-way tie, Eastern Washington will not make the tournament.
