Weber State University Game Day Thread: WSU v. McNeese State

WSU Coach Sears: "Happy to (finally) return to playing against someone at our own level."

WSU v. McNeese State
Our Weber State Wildcats definitely have their hands full again this evening, as they travel to Lake Charles, Louisiana, to face the McNeese State University Cowboys  at Cowboy Stadium/Louis Bonnette Field in a game set for kickoff at 6:00 p.m. (Mountain Time).

The Cowboys boast of a 3-0 season record and a No. 2 national rating in scoring offense (51.7 points per game), whilst our hapless Wildcats (1-2) are coming off successive blowout road losses to NCAA FBS Division powerhouses Utah and Utah State.

WSU coach Sears certainly isn't about to write this game off however, as "the ’Cats are happy to return to playing against someone at their own (FCS) level."

Just to get your Wildcat fan juices flowing, here are the pregame writeups from the Standard and the Tribune:
