POCATELLO, Idaho -- Eric Barriere threw three touchdown passes and Eastern Washington came alive in the third quarter with a pair of 80-yard touchdowns to roll to a 48-5 win over Idaho State on Saturday.
After a sluggish first half when the Eagles had to settle for three field goals and a touchdown on a fake field goal in four trips into the red zone, they flipped the script by staying out of the red zone.
Antoine Custer started the rout for the Eagles (5-5, 4-2 Big Sky Conference), with an 89-yard touchdown run, the longest of his career, on the second snap of the second half. On the first snap after the Bengals kicked a field goal to make it 27-5, Barriere found Johnny Edwards for an 80-yard catch-and-run, the longest passing play of their career for both Eagles.
The last two scores were Barriere passes to Andrew Boston covering 21 and 59 yards.
Barriere finished 23 of 38 for 406 yards with Boston getting 147 yards on 10 catches, both career bests, and Edwards 107 on four. With Custer getting his 10th career century game, with 145 yards, Eastern Washington finished with 737 yards, their third game over 700 yards this season. It was the seventh 700-yard game in EWU history.
