If height carries any predictive value, Eastern Washington will prevail in the FCS National Championship, ousting North Dakota State in the ninth overtime.
Eastern Washington and North Dakota State players stand, on average, 6 feet and 1 2/3 inches. More specifically, EWU's average height: 6.168 feet. NDSU's average height: 6.165 feet.
Of the nine position groups, the Eagles are taller in five, though no margin — for either team — is greater than 0.15.
