(STATS) -- Just like the offense, the red carpet is rolled out at Eastern Washington for the defense this season.Oh, the high-powered offense is still rolling, but the Eagles dont necessarily have to overcome their defense by winning shootouts.They posted their first shutout since 2009 in eliminating Richmond 38-0 in the FCS playoff quarterfinals Saturday on the red turf at Roos Field.Eastern Washington (12-1), a Big Sky Conference co-champion, will host Youngstown State (11-3) from the Missouri Valley Football Conference in an FCS semifinal next Saturday. Its a matchup of past FCS national champs as YSU won four titles in the 1990s and EWU captured its only one in 2010.Richmond (10-4) didnt challenge against the Eagles after the CAA Football squad made its second straight cross-country trip following a second-round win at North Dakota last Saturday. Roos Field was slick from snow in Cheney this week, but the Samson Ebukam-led defense had more to do with the Spiders offensive woes. The visitors committed five turnovers, quarterback Kevin Johnson was sacked six times and they finished with just 205 yards of offense. Their turnovers led to 17 Eagles points.Ebukam, a senior defensive end, had eight tackles, two sacks, two other tackles for loss, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and an interception. Linebacker Miquiyah Zamora also had eight stops and a fumble recovery.Im so happy for what those guys (have done), theyve earned that, EWU coach Beau Baldwin said of the defense. It didnt just happen out there today, it goes way back.The Eagles, whose defense has improved under coordinator Jeff Schmedding, shut out Central Arkansas in the second half a week ago, so their streak rose to six quarters after they posted their first shutout since a 16-0 win over Northern Colorado on Sept. 19, 2009.They combined the big defensive effort with Gage Gubruds three first-half touchdown passes to dominate the first-ever meeting between the two programs.Gubrud finished 21 of 32 for 287 yards, raising his season total to an FCS-leading 4,807 yards. Senior wide receiver Cooper Kupp caught six passes for 128 yards and a touchdown, extending his career receiving yards to 6,284 -- a record for all divisions of college football.Nsimba Webster and Shaq Hill also caught touchdowns, while Jabari Wilson and Antoine Custer both rushed for scores.We just played together as a team the whole game, Baldwin said. Thats what I loved about it.Eastern Washington announced on Friday it is finalizing a five-year contract with Baldwin, its ninth-year head coach. He improved to 85-31 with the Eagles with Saturdays win.Dallas Stars Pro Shop . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. Stars Jerseys 2021 . PAUL, Minn. . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Wholesale Stars Jerseys . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. Fake Stars Jerseys . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft.The New England Patriots are division champs for a record eighth straight season. The Seattle Seahawks won their third NFC West title in the past four seasons.Right now, theyre the only two teams to have their divisions clinched. The other six are very much up for grabs.
