• PSU receiver Tremayne Kirkland is expected back after missing last week's 34-13 win over Idaho State with a pinched nerve in his neck. 'His legs will be 100 percent,' coach Tim Walsh says.

• Portland State is 4-3 overall, 3-2 in the Big Sky; Eastern Washington is 2-5, 2-2. The Vikings are ranked 23rd in Division I-AA.

• 'They're really good on defense, like most of the teams in the Big Sky,' Walsh says of the Eagles. 'I think the team whose offense plays the best will win.'
