by EWU Athletics Media Relations

Reese Court will be open for fan festivities during Saturday's NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Second Round game between Eastern Washington and South Dakota State, Athletic Director Bill Chaves announced Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Saturday's contest kicks off at 1 p.m. PT. Tickets can be purchased at GoEags.com/Tickets.

Beginning at 10:30 a.m., the Red Zone Tailgate will take place on the North Mezzanine inside Reese Court, lasting until 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for people ages 12 and over and $5 for ages 3-11. Those ages 2 and under are free. There will be a baked potato and chili bar and beverages from Pepsi and MillerCoors. Swoop, Cheer and the EWU Marching Band will all make appearances. During the pregame tailgate, Montana's game will be shown on the video board.

Reese Court will close following the alumni event before reopening with five minutes remaining in the second quarter, giving fans the chance to warm up during halftime. Reese will remain open through the end of the game with the video board broadcasting the ESPN3 feed for fans wishing to stay indoors. Dining Services will be selling chili and chowder as well as hot chocolate and coffee beginning at halftime through the end of the game.

Bob and Ray's Beer Garden will have a number of heaters and will be open throughout the game, and the Inferno Team Shop will be selling hand warmers.

The Eagles earned a bye last weekend after winning their first outright Big Sky title since 1997. South Dakota State defeated Northern Arizona last weekend to advance to the second round.
