Eastern Washington vs Sacramento State Prediction

Eastern Washington clinched the regular season conference title last weekend, but they come into a very manageable spot here to close the season in Sacramento. The Hornets have been a step behind all season, and while they could provide Senior Night heroics, it may just be best to roll with the league-leading Eagles. Back EWU for this Big Sky matchup.
