Eastern Washington University's NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoff game at McNeese State will be broadcast in the Spokane area on Oldies 101.1 FM in Spokane instead of KGA.
The game kicks-off at 5 p.m. Pacific time from Cowboy Stadium in Lake Charles, La., as the 8-3 Eagles take on 11-0 McNeese State. The pre-game show starts at 4 p.m., and the internet broadcast is available at http://www.oldies1011.com. Larry Weir calls the play-by-play.
No television coverage or video webcast is available. The Cowboys are seeded second in the playoffs and are ranked third in FCS. Eastern is ranked 14th.
If Eastern wins, the Eagles will play at the winner of today's Appalachian State versus James Madison game. If McNeese State wins, the Cowboys host one of those teams in the next round. The quarterfinals take place Dec. 1, the semifinals are Dec. 7 and 8 and the championship is Dec. 14 in Chattanooga, Tenn.
The radio station conflict was created when Gonzaga lost to Texas Tech Friday at the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout in Anchorage, Alaska. Gonzaga's consolation game in the tournament against Virginia Tech starts at 7 p.m., and the Bulldogs receive precedence over EWU on KGA.
Eastern's men's basketball team is also in Alaska, and plays tournament host Alaska-Anchorage at 1 p.m. Pacific time. That game may be heard on KGA 1510-AM in Spokane. Sean Widmer calls the play-by-play.
Eastern's basketball and football games may also be heard on KGTK 920-AM in Olympia/Tacoma and KITZ 1400-AM in Port Orchard/Seattle.
