Oregon to host Eastern Washington in 2022

By Kevin Kelley -

The Oregon Ducks will host the Eastern Washington Eagles in 2022, according to EWU’s 2017 football media guide.

Oregon will host Eastern Washington at Autzen Stadium in Eugene to open the 2022 season on Sept. 3. The game will be the second meeting between the two schools following the Ducks’ 61-42 victory in 2015.

Eastern Washington is a member of the Big Sky Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). Last season, the Eagles lost in the FCS Playoff semifinals 40-38 to Youngstown State and finished with a 12-2 overall record.

Oregon now has two of their three non-conference games scheduled for the 2022 season. The Ducks are also slated to host the BYU Cougars on Sept. 17.

EWU is the sixth FCS opponent on Oregon’s future football schedules. Others include Southern Utah (2017), Portland State (2018, 2023), Montana (2019), North Dakota State (2020), and Stony Brook (2021).

Update (8/16/2017)

Per a copy of the contract, Oregon will pay Eastern Washington a $612,500 guarantee for the game.
