    5 Keys To The Schedule

    – The Cowboys start out the season with a nasty MAC game against Northern Illinois before going to Nebraska. They have to show up at home against UC Davis, and on the road in a revenge game against Eastern Michigan. There’s a real chance for a 2-2 start.
    – The dates against the West aren’t easy, going to Nevada and UNLV and hosting San Diego State. Win one of this three, and it’ll be a success.
    – There might be a run of three road trips in four games, but at least there’s a week off before the final date at Nevada. One of the road games is right down the road at Colorado State.
    – Two of the final three games are on the road, going to UNLV and New Mexico. Almost all the tough games are at home against Air Force, Boise State, Utah State and San Diego State, but can UW win any of those?
    – WATCH OUT FOR … the trip to Eastern Michigan. The home loss to the Eagles last season was one of the most embarrassing defeats by anyone in the country. Lose this, and pretty much pack up the season because it doesn’t get easier the rest of the way.
