Eastern Oregon wraps up home schedule against Dickinson State

The Eastern Oregon University football team wraps up its home schedule at noon against Dickinson State Saturday at Community Stadium.

The Mountaineers (3-5 overall, 3-4 Frontier Conference) have won three of four games after an 0-4 start, while Dickinson State (1-9 overall, 0-8 FC) has dropped three straight games.

“Lot of enthusiasm this week,” EOU head coach Tim Camp said. “Coming off a big win up at Montana Tech. I don’t care if Tech is up or down, that’s a tough place to go play and always has been.”

Camp said a team like the Blue Hawks, which has lost 15 straight Frontier Conference games, can be a trap game if the Mountaineers aren’t careful.

“They have nothing to lose,” Camp said. “We have to be smart about what we do. I’ve never been in a situation with only one win, but I know I’d be aggressive in everything that I do.”

The Mountaineers are coming off a game in which they piled up 484 yards, 316 of which came on the ground. Chris McGinnis-Parker had a career-high 202 yards against the Orediggers.

Camp said fans can expect another heavy dosage of the run game Saturday.

“It kind of reminds me of my Bucknell days when we’re running the ball for 300 yards a game. I love it,” Camp said. “We gotta do a good job of mixing things up. I love running Chris and the other backs. I played four backs last week and three backs the week before. But Chris is an exceptional runner.”

Dickinson State is averaging just 241.8 yards per game this season. Camp said EOU has to be prepared to load the box and slow the run game Saturday.

“They’re a two-back, power, inside zone, stretch play (team),” Camp said. “They’re going to try and establish the run and use the play-action pass off of it. They’re not averaging a lot of points per game. But they got some guys on the outside that are averaging 30 yards per reception. You let a couple of them get by you, and you’re looking at a long football game.”

EOU defeated the Blue Hawks 14-0 last year in Dickinson, N.D. Now DSU makes the 1,100-mile trip to La Grande.

Kickoff is scheduled for noon. The game can be listed to live on 103.1 FM.
