 Eric Barriere, Eastern Washington, Player News


  Eric Barriere threw for one touchdown and ran for another and the Eastern Washington defense continually came up with big plays in a 19-9 win over Northern Iowa in the first round of the FCS playoffs on Saturday. The Eagles (10-2) advance to a second-round game on Friday night at conference rival Montana, the sixth-seed in the playoffs and a team they beat 34-28 in a battle of Top 10 teams in the middle of the season. Barriere connected with Nolan Ulm for a 26-yard touchdown to open the scoring. Barriere then spun out of a sack, weaved his way past several defenders and raced around the left in for an 18-yard score that made it 16-7 midway through the third quarter.

Three times the Panthers (6-6) stopped Eastern Washington on fourth down and out-gained the Eagles 423-412 but couldn't come up with clutch plays. Keshaun King had two of Eastern's three interceptions and linebacker Ty Graham's 13 tackles led a defense that held Northern Iowa to 2 of 15 on third down and 2 of 5 on fourth down. Two of the fourth down stops were in the fourth quarter, one at the EWU 3. All three picks were in the second half, the last two in the fourth quarter at the EWU 9 and 15. Theo Day threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Sam Schnee in the last minute of the second quarter to make it a 9-7 game. But on their first two possessions of the second half the Panthers missed a field goal and King had a 20-yard return on an interception to the UNI 27 to set up Berriere's run. - Western Kentucky/AP College Football

  Eric Barriere threw five touchdown passes, including three in the third quarter as Eastern Washington pulled away, and the Eagles beat Portland State 42-28 on Saturday in the regular-season finale. Eastern Washington (9-2, 6-2 Big Sky Conference) went three-and-out on the opening possession of the second half and Portland State went 80 yards on five plays to take a 21-14 lead when Davis Alexander threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Beau Kelly with 11:18 left in the third quarter. Barriere hit Talolo Limu-Jones for a 7-yard TD about 2 1/2 minutes later, the Vikings fumbled on their next play from scrimmage and Efton Chism III caught a 20-yard scoring strike from Barriere. Another Portland State fumble set up a 4-yard touchdown pass from Barriere to Freddie Roberson that gave the Eagles a 35-21 lead with 4:31 left in the quarter.

Barriere was 26-of-35 passing for 320 yards. He threw a 12-yard TD pass to Andrew Boston in the first quarter and hit Chism for a 14-yard score to make it 14-14 early in the second quarter.

  Eric Barriere passed for 411 yards and three touchdowns and Eastern Washington rallied for a 38-20 victory over UC Davis on Saturday night. Barriere completed 34 of 54 passes and has thrown for 3,526 yards with 32 TDs and only six picks this season. Pierce ran for 89 yards on 17 carries, while Barriere added 42 on seven totes. Roberson finished with six catches for 93 yards, while Talolo Limu-Jones caught six passes for 92. Barriere became the Big Sky Conference's career leader in passing yards with 12,676, breaking former Eagle Matt Nichols' record of 12,616. He is also tied with Vernon Adams Jr.'s program and Big Sky Conference mark for all-time touchdown passes with 110. Eastern Washington, which had lost back-to-back games, was eliminated from contention for the Big Sky Conference title - and its automatic entry into the FCS playoffs - when Montana State won earlier in the day but boosted its odds for an at-large berth with a road win over a potential playoff team.

UC Davis, ranked No. 4 in the FCS coaches poll, took a 17-14 lead on freshman Lan Larison's 97-yard kick-return score to open the third quarter. Barriere answered with an 18-yard TD toss to Dylan Ingram and EWU never trailed again. Isaiah Lewis and Tamarick Pierce had scoring runs for the Eagles in the fourth quarter. Freshman Miles Hastings staked UC Davis to a 7-0 lead after one quarter with a 1-yard TD toss to Jared Harrell. Barriere tossed TD passes covering 4 yards to Freddie Roberson and 3 yards to Efton Chism III to put the eighth-ranked Eagles (8-2, 5-2 Big Sky Conference) on top 14-7 midway through the second quarter. Isaiah Gomez's 29-yard field goal cut the Aggies' deficit to four at halftime. - Eastern Washington/AP College Football

Montana (3-1, 1-1) drove to the EWU 13 before a throw into the end zone as time expired fell incomplete. It was the 19th time the teams faced each other as ranked opponents. Merritt finished with 23 carries for 103 yards. His 10 touchdowns this season are most in FCS. - Eastern Washington/AP College Football

  Eric Barriere threw three touchdown passes and Eastern Washington came alive in the third quarter with a pair of 80-yard touchdowns to roll to a 48-5 win over Idaho State on Saturday. After a sluggish first half when the Eagles had to settle for three field goals and a touchdown on a fake field goal in four trips into the red zone, they flipped the script by staying out of the red zone. Antoine Custer started the rout for the Eagles (5-5, 4-2 Big Sky Conference), with an 89-yard touchdown run, the longest of his career, on the second snap of the second half. On the first snap after the Bengals kicked a field goal to make it 27-5, Barriere found Johnny Edwards for an 80-yard catch-and-run, the longest passing play of their career for both Eagles.

The last two scores were Barriere passes to Andrew Boston covering 21 and 59 yards. Barriere finished 23 of 38 for 406 yards with Boston getting 147 yards on 10 catches, both career bests, and Edwards 107 on four. With Custer getting his 10th career century game, with 145 yards, Eastern Washington finished with 737 yards, their third game over 700 yards this season. It was the seventh 700-yard game in EWU history. Idaho State (3-7, 2-4) had 416 yards but Matt Struck threw three interceptions, two picks by Calin Criner, to lose to EWU for the 11th straight time. - AP College Football
