Eagles make appearance in Capital One Cup standings ... for a limited time only | Sports & Recreation
If you were watching sports over the weekend, you undoubtedly saw a commercial about the Capital One Cup – a competition “recognizing the best in college sports” – and if you are an Eagles fan, one of the universities in the standings caught your eye.
Eastern Washington is currently tied for 10th place, but that is because only the fall sports have completed their championships. EWU's fourth-place finish in the FCS Tournament was good enough for 24 points in the standings.
“Points toward the Capital One Cup are earned and tracked throughout the year based on final standings of NCAA Championships and final official coaches' polls,” the cup's website reads.
While other EWU programs will inevitably play well within their division, it is unlikely any of them will compete nationally. So, once the winter seasons conclude and final standings are reported, the Eagles will inevitably fall out of contention for the Capital One Cup.
But for the time being, enjoy the national exposure in all those ads, Eag fans!
