(STATS) -- Theres not going to be any major surprises for the defenses in Saturday nights Big Sky showdown between Eastern Washington and Cal Poly. Tim Duncan Spurs Jersey.And although each team knows exactly what the opposition wants to do with the ball, actually stopping them is a whole other story.In a matchup between two teams with an eye on the Big Sky crown, the third-ranked Eagles bring the FCS top-ranked passing offense to San Luis Obispo, California, for a clash with No. 14 Cal Poly, which boasts the subdivisions top rushing attack.The Big Sky is far and away the most explosive conference in the FCS. Its teams are averaging a subdivision-best 426.5 offensive yards and have amassed 421 scrimmage TDs -- 99 more than the next-closest conference.Eastern Washington (7-1, 5-0) and Cal Poly (6-2, 4-1) are two of the premier offenses in the Big Sky, but their playbooks are vastly different.For the second straight year, the Eagles are atop the FCS in passing yards, and nobody is really close. EWUs 439.4 yards through the air are the most by a team since 2000, and 63.4 yards more than Samford, the divisions No. 2 team in passing.The aerial attack is led by the dangerous duo of quarterback Gage Gubrud and wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who are both on the STATS FCS Offensive Player of the Year Watch List.Gubrud wrapped up an astounding October by throwing four touchdowns in last Saturdays 35-16 win over then-No. 16 Montana. In four games last month, the sophomore completed 71.7 percent of his passes for 1,783 yards with 19 touchdowns to just two interceptions.He has 31 TDs on the season, with 11 going to Kupp while Shaq Hill has hauled in 10 scores through the air.Kupp leads the FCS with 143.7 receiving yards per game and needs 17 receptions to tie Elons Terrell Hudgins FCS record of 395 catches. The 2015 STATS FCS Offensive Player of the Year already owns the FCS records of 5,770 receiving yards and 67 TDs.Weve got our work cut out for us, Cal Poly coach Tim Walsh said. I really do think that they are probably the best team in the nation right now. I think they are so skilled on offense.Walshs team, however, was able to shut down Kupp in last seasons meeting, limiting him to 21 yards on four receptions. Although Kupp managed his fewest yards since gaining nine in the sixth game of his freshman year, EWU rallied from 15 points down in the final five minutes and went on to win 42-41 in overtime.The Eagles prevailed despite allowing the Mustangs to churn out 503 rushing yards -- the most theyve yielded since 1998.Cal Poly, the FCS top rushing team each of the last two seasons, is once again atop the division at 370.3 run yards per game, and is coming off its best showing in its 23-year history in the FCS.The Mustangs piled up 527 rushing yards in last Saturdays 59-47 win at Sacramento State as Joe Protheroe ran for 168 and Kori Garcia totaled 146 on just 12 attempts. Five Mustangs scored rushing touchdowns in the programs highest-scoring game since 2012.Its going to be a tough challenge for us handling what they do offensively, EWU coach Beau Baldwin said.What they do is run the triple option, but they also throw a little bit just to keep defenses honest.Quarterback Dano Graves has 408 yards on the ground to go with 15 passing touchdowns on just 97 attempts. His average of 11.2 yards per throw and 15.5 passing touchdown percentage are actually better than Gubruds 9.6 and 9.2 -- thought hes attempted 239 fewer passes.The engine of the offense, though, is the ground game, and Cal Poly has several dangerous backs.Protheroe leads the Big Sky with 921 rushing yards and averages 5.7 per carry while Garcia is fourth with 673 yards and is at 7.6 per attempt. Kyle Lewis has run for 561 yards and his average of 11 yards per carry is the best in the FCS among those with at least 50 attempts.Rounding out the Mustangs ground attack is Jared Mohamed, who has rushed for 237 yards -- the exact same number as Eastern Washingtons top running back, Jabari Wilson.They are totally different than what we faced, Baldwin said of Cal Poly after going up against Montanas pass-first offense. Its a challenge and they are playing really well. Facing different offenses is tough, but what makes them difficult to defend is when they are executing at a high level and they have the type of players within their offense that fit their system. That tells you they have recruited well, have developed their players and they are extremely well coached. Spurs Jerseys . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Patty Mills Spurs Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. http:///...s-spurs-jersey-c-20/ . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Jared Cornelius scored on a 6-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter to lift No. 22 Arkansas to a 34-30 win over No. 12 Mississippi on Saturday night.The win is the third in a row for the Razorbacks (5-2, 1-2 SEC) over the Rebels, who have now lost three of their first six games a season after winning the Sugar Bowl.Austin Allen was 19-of-32 passing for 229 yards and three touchdowns for Arkansas, giving the junior an SEC-best 18 touchdown passes for the season. Rawleigh Williams added a career-high 180 yards rushing on 27 carries for the Razorbacks, who bounced back following a 49-30 loss at home to No. 1 Alabama a week ago.I told the guys, `Lets do whatever we have to do to protect this house, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. They never wavered and needed help from the crowd, and they delivered.Chad Kelly accounted for 342 yards of total offense for Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2), throwing for 253 yards and rushing for 89 more. The senior also threw for a touchdown and ran for two more.Evan Engram led the Rebels with seven catches for 111 yards and a touchdown.The two teams played an overtime thriller a year ago in Oxford , a game in which Arkansas completed a miraculous fourth-and-25 on its way to a 53-52 victory.They also entered Saturday with the two most efficient quarterbacks in the SEC, and neither Kelly nor Allen disappointed. The duo combined for 571 yards of total offense.It was Cornelius, however, who had the final say with his 6-yard touchdown runn with 2:20 remaining. George Gervin Spurs Jersey. Ole Miss had one more drive following Arkansas go-ahead score, but Kelly fumbled on a fourth-and-16 scramble that came up short.Were in the games and competing, Rebels coach Hugh Freeze said. Weve got to see the big picture, even though its hard to right now, sitting here.THE TAKEAWAYOle Miss: The Rebels entered the game 102nd in the country in total defense, allowing 449.4 yards per game. They once again struggled on Saturday by allowing 429 total yards to Arkansas, a number that was more than 450 before the Razorbacks purposely took several large losses while running out the clock on the games final drive.Arkansas: The Razorbacks still have offensive line concerns after allowing three more sacks of Allen, but they moved the ball consistently through the air and on the ground -- giving them renewed hope with only SEC games remaining this season.POLL IMPLICATIONSArkansas was in danger of falling out of the rankings, but now its likely to once again push its way into the top 20 -- perhaps even surpassing the Rebels. The Razorbacks only losses this season are to No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Texas A&M.UP NEXTOle Miss: The Rebels are on the road for the second straight week, traveling to Baton Rouge to face LSU.Arkansas: The Razorbacks play for the eighth straight week to open the season, traveling to No. 23 Auburn next week. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
