There have been 11 playoff games on Roos field since the Eagles won the National Championship in 2010. EWU has won seven of those games, losing three times in the semifinals. This year the Eagles start their playoff run at home again, with Southland Conference champion Nichols State coming to Cheney for the first time, in what will be the second ever meeting between the two schools.
