CHENEY, Wash. (AP) — Gage Gubrud threw for five touchdowns, Nsimba Webster and Sam McPherson had career days and Eastern Washington opened the season on Saturday with a 58-13 win over Central Washington.

Gubrud finished 19 of 23 for 337 yards, his 17th 300-yard game, with Webster catching 10 passes for a career-high 212 yards, ninth-best in school history, and two scores. McPherson had 15 carries for 185 yards and a touchdown. The Eagles had 677 yards of total offense, fifth-most in school history.

Calin Criner returned the opening kickoff 20 yards to midfield and on the first snap of the season, Gubrud connected with Webster for a 50-yard touchdown.

Gubrud’s fourth pass was incomplete, as was his 15th but he finished the first half 14 of 16 for 252 yards and four touchdowns, all to different receivers. Weber had eight catches for 164 yards.

Reilly Hennessey, who started his career at Eastern Washington before transferring to Division II Central after Gubrud won the starting job in 2016, threw for one touchdown and ran for another.
