WSU Game Day Thread: Weber State v. Southern Utah University - Updated

The Wildcats haven't given up... and neither should we

Our beloved but downtrodden Weber State Wildcats are once again back on the road this afternoon folks, where they'll step onto the gridiron at 1:00 p.m. to battle it out with the Big Sky Conference newcomer Southern Utah Thunderbirds' in Southern Utah University's Eccles Coliseum (Official motto: "Maybe not  the largest facility of its type, but... one of the nicest, among the FCS ranks").

With four games remaining on the Wildcats 2012 schedule, our 0-4 in conference Wildcats still have hopes of finishing up this year with a breakeven .500 conference season; so there's still a good chance that our home town team will not close the 2012 season floundering in the Big Sky Conference cellar.

Here's the pre-game skinny from each team's home town newspaper, the Standard-Examiner and the Cedar City Spectrum, respectively:
 Looks like the "fickle" Wildcats' "flagship" radio station (KZNS-AM "The Zone") has now bailed-out on weekly game broadcasts, but avid Wildcats fans can still catch the game the old fashioned way via KZNS-FM 106.9.

And here's something special for true diehards who'd like to catch some live online streaming game video:
We tried this last week; and despite the slight hassle of signing up for a free "pass," and downloading a couple of "helper" software apps (takes only a couple of minutes,) the audio and video quality is actually pretty danged good, so we'll highly reco this software setup for those folks who simply can't stand going another week without viewing Wildcats football.

The 'Cats will  be playing out the rest of the season mainly for pride, people, but lets all show our continuing support.  The Wildcats haven't given up... and neither should we.

Go Wildcats!

Update 10/20/12 4:02 p.m.: Whoa! WSU  barely snatches victory from the jaws of defeat, almost blows a 21-16 fourth quarter lead, and yet still gets its first season win, after covering a SUU onside kick. Weber State 24, Southern Utah 22,  It wasn't a pretty win; but will take the Double-U. Whew!

Update 10/21/12 8:30 a.m.: The Standard provides this post-game writeup:
