CHENEY, Wash. -- Eastern Washington football coach Beau Baldwin is of 20 finalists for the Eddie Robinson Award after leading the Eagles to a share of the Big Sky Conference championship.

After finishing 6-5 last year, the Eagles went 9-2 overall and 7-1 in the Big Sky. Eastern earned the No. 2 seed in the upcoming FCS playoffs and will face Wagner or Colgate in a second-round game Dec. 1 at Roos Field.

A panel of about 160 sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries will select the Robinson Award winner, which is presented by The Sports Network.

Voting will reflect only the regular season and conclude before the FCS playoffs begin Saturday. The winner will be announced Dec. 17 at the FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation in Philadelphia.
