Eastern Washington tops Northern Colorado 26-18

CHENEY, Wash. (AP) Vincent Gamboa’s interception with 2 minutes to play sealed Eastern Washington’s 26-18 win over Northern Colorado on Saturday in a game that saw the Eagles record seven sacks and get a key touchdown on a special teams trick play.

Despite a solid game by the defense, which also had eight tackles for losses, for Eastern Washington (7-1, 4-0 Big Sky Conference), the Bears (2-5, 1-3) were driving late in the game before Gamboa’s interception of a Sean Rubalcaba pass sealed the Eagles’ 14th-straight league win.

Rubalcaba hit Malcolm Whye with a 30-yard touchdown and then ran in the two-point conversion with 10:14 left. He then guided the Bears from deep in their own territory to EWU’s side of the field before the pick.

EWU took a 20-3 lead early in the second half when Conner Richardson hit Terry Jackson II for a 15-yard touchdown on a fake field goal.
