Eastern Washington produced a pretty fair NFL player in the Los Angeles Rams’ WR Cooper Kupp. Scouts might want to head to the school and check out its current quarterback.

Eric Barriere, a senior from Southern California dismantled Idaho on Saturday.

Barriere was 26-of–35 for 600 passing yards and 7 touchdowns in the 71-21 route.

He added one more on the ground to finish with eight total scores.

“Eric Barriere, again, substantiates himself as the best player in the land at this level,” Head Coach Aaron Best said. “Period, bar none, zero discussion as far as I’m concerned. He is explosive, he is selfless …

Freddie Roberson, Andrew Boston, and Dennis Merritt were over 100 yards receiving.

Barriere ended the day in sole possession of second place with 103 touchdown passes at EWU, seven away from tying Vernon Adams Jr.’s record.

Barriere 13,238 yards of total offense, 70 yards from breaking Matt Nichols’ Big Sky Conference and program record. He also moves into fifth on the passing yards list as well with 11,806 and is 16-0 as a starter at Roos Field.

Barriere got the game ball after his astonishing performance.
