WSU Game Day Thread: WSU Wildcats v. UC Davis

Will Coach Mac succeed in righting the listing WSU ship?

It's homecoming week on the Weber State campus; and the Standard-Examiner has the story about this evening's gridiron battle. Here's the lede:
OGDEN -- UC Davis will be checking out its future home in the Big Sky Conference today while Weber State celebrates homecoming, but the Wildcats have no intention of laying out a welcome mat or setting out mints for the Aggies.
Weber State (1-2, 1-1) has focused this week on correcting its mistakes from last Saturday's loss at Sacramento State; tonight, the Wildcats will see if their efforts turn into results at home against another Sacramento-area team, UC Davis (1-2).
Kickoff is at 6 p.m. at Stewart Stadium.

Will Coach Mac succeed in correcting the mental errors and righting the listing WSU ship? Find out by following the real-time audio and video broadcasts on KLO Radio or Big Sky TV. (Of course as Gentle Curmudgeon aptly points out in our lower comments section, the very best way to catch the game is to buy a ticket and join the throngs of of loyal WSU fans in Stewart Stadium.)

We'll leave the lights on for your thoughtful comments, as per usual, Wildcat fans.

Update 9/26/10 9:00 a.m.: After a lackluster first half, WSU picked up the pace and prevailed by a final score of 20-9.

Or go to the game. I'll be in the west side stands, about the south 35 yard line. Looks to be a fine fall evening for college football. The tailgating is a tad --- well, let's just say "sedate" --- but on the upside, nobody's going to barf on you during the game. This is no small thing.

TV's fine, and radio works if there's no other option. But nothing works like being there.

Exactly right, Curm. Silly me.

RudiZink said...

Oh great! Big Sky TV is on a one minute tape delay... and has no audio.

Shoulda gone to the stadium, I guess.

RudiZink said...

OK. Now there's audio. WSU up by a field goal.

Half time score: UC Davis 6; WSU 3
Final: Nevada 27; BYU 13

It was not a thing of beauty, but a W is a W. Nice crowd, 10,300 announced. And a very loud student section which I haven't heard at a WSU game in a while.

Game was in the wood until the final four minutes, which made it a fun game to watch. Perfect fall evening college football weather. Ya shoulda been there.
