TOLEDO, OH - The University of Toledo will host Eastern Washington in football on Sept. 14, 2013, UT Athletic Director Mike O'Brien announced today. It will be the first meeting between the two schools.
Eastern Washington is an NCAA Division I school competing in the Football Championship Subdivision. The Eagles were 6-5 in 2011, following a 2010 season when they went 13-2 and defeated Delaware, 20-19, to claim the FCS national championship.
"We are very pleased to add Eastern Washington to our 2013 home football schedule," said O'Brien. "The Eagles have one of the premier programs in the FCS, so we are looking forward to hosting them in the Glass Bowl."
"Eastern Washington is an outstanding FCS program that will provide a definite challenge for our team," added head coach Matt Campbell. "We have a lot of respect for Coach Beau Baldwin and the job he and his staff have done."
The EWU game completes the 2013 non-conference schedule. The Rockets also host Navy on Oct. 19, and travel to Florida on Aug. 31 and Missouri on Sept. 7.
