Coach Jay Hill’s Wildcats face another Big Sky showdown against a nationally-ranked team Saturday at No. 11 Eastern Washington. The Eagles are 5-3 overall and tied with Weber State at 4-1 in Big Sky play, and they are the highest ranked team in the Big Sky.

Northern Arizona is undefeated in conference play at 5-0 and is ranked 16th in the coaches poll and 18th in the STATS poll. Southern Utah is 17th in the STATS poll and 23rd in the coaches poll.
