StatSmack! Southern Utah is better than Eastern Washington
  • Winning is in our blood. Southern Utah had a better record in close games than Eastern Washington last season (7-6 vs 2-5).
  • More violent crime happens per capita in Cheney so be careful if you visit (when compared to Cedar City -- according to the FBI).

  • It's only wins and losses, but Southern Utah has a better overall record than Eastern Washington this season (4-7 vs 3-9).
