WSU Kicks Off Its Big Sky Conference Football Season

WSU Wildcats meet Northern Colorado Bears in Stewart Stadium at 6:00 p.m.

Attention Weber State University Football fans!

WSU kicks off its Big Sky Conference schedule against Northern Colorado this evening, a big Sky Conference opponent which hasn't beaten WSU during the whole coaching tenure of coach Ron McBride.

As Carl Arky says, after playing Boston College last week, "maybe WSU will have opponents of their own size to pick on this week."

The Standard-Examiner carries a couple of pregame stories just to get WSU fans' juices flowing:
Primed for Big Sky wars: McBride takes nothing for granted against Bears
With several records on radar, Higgins only focused on wins
Check out the Wildcats and Bears rosters respectively here and here.

If you can't actually make it to the stadium for whatever lame reason, catch the live audio on KLO Radio, or the Altitude Channel video broadcast (live in DirecTV and The Dish; and the totally weird tape-delayed broadcast on Comcast 8:00 p.m.)

(Special note to that WSU fan with the new Ipod, with whom I had lunch on Friday: Feel free to podcast here wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)

For those readers who'd like to offer their own live play-by-play, we'll leave our lower comments section open for that purpose as per usual.

Please vigilantly support own hometown College Team, people.

Interim Football Update 9/16/10 5:10 p.m.: The Zoobies get their ass royally kicked by the Air Force Academy, 35-14! The Utah Utes beat the 22 point spread, and kick Bobby Hauck's UNLV Rebels ass, 38-10.

All is good in Mountain West Conference football! Now lets get back to Big Sky Conference Football.

Who will be the first to comment?

Update 9/12/10 8:00 a.m.: In what turned out to be one of the more weird and error-plagued games within memory, the Wildcats survive four overtime periods to pull out a 50-47 victory:
Wildcats survive overtime fireworks - literally
Although it certainly wasn't a thing of beauty... a win is a win.

Me. The Wildcats just kicked the ball (after a delay of game penalty) Sheesh.

Wow. I was just cooking froglegs on the grill. Well they're actually toadlegs which I found while collecting critters in my yard. (I'm still trying to decide what to do with the raccoon.) Looks like it's the Wildcats up by 9-3, after muffing an easy PAT.

Not Awesome, the ball game, I mean.

Well. That was certainly different.

WSU 50 Northern Colorado 47, 4OT

Yup. Nothing like a good defensive battle on the grid iron.

All in all a good football day. The Mighty Wisconsin Badgers won again, the Wildcats won their first conference game, the U won a conference game and BYU lost one, and Notre Dame lost a heart breaker late at home. Can't ask for much better than that.

Go Wildcats.
Justin Biebers name rhymes with Weber.
