LAS VEGAS (AP) — Eric Barriere threw for 374 yards and three touchdowns – including a pair of first-down scoring strikes in each overtime – and Eastern Washington escaped with a 35-33 double-overtime victory over UNLV in a season opener. It was the fourth time in ten years that the FCS Eagles upset an FBS opponent and they overcame three turnovers and three missed field goals – one on the final play in regulation – to do it.
