Weber State Football Game Day Special: WSU v. Cal-Poly SLO

“The past does not equal the future,” says Weber State Coach Sears, "knockin' on wood"

Our indefatigable WSU Wildcats football squad (1-5, 0-2 Big Sky) hits the road again and travels west to San Luis Obispo, California this evening, for tonight's gridiron battle with Cal Poly Mustangs (2-3, 1-0). Kickoff's set for 7:00 p.m. (MT) at Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

We've gathered up the pre-game stories from the Standard-Examiner and the San Luis Obispo Tribune:
I looks like the 'Cats still have their work cut out for them again tonight, if we're to believe the Vegas line and odds, which have the 'Cats installed as 28-point underdogs:

The good news?  Weber State "gets more help" tonight, "with senior center Tyson Tiatia and senior kicker Shaun McClain [having been] reinstated this week after a six-game academic suspension. Both will return to starting roles," according the this earler Standard-Examiner story:

Can the Wildcats pull a rabbit outta their hats tonight and finally put a win in their big Sky Conference record column?  “The past does not equal the future,” says Weber State Coach Sears, "knockin' on wood."

We guess we'll soon find out.

Repeat the mantra, WSU fans: Go Wildcats!

Update 10/12/13 9:45 p.m.: Final, Final... Cal-Poly 47, WSU 0. Ugh!

Lookin' at the bright side, local college football fans... the Utah Utes beat #5 Stanford @ Rice-Eccles Stadium 27-21! First Ute win @ home over a top 5 team EVER!!!

Update 10/13/13 6:30 a.m.:  The Standard's Roy Burton provides the post-game story:
Looks like the 2013 team is destined for the record books.

That 3 year contract the coach signed might not have been a wise use of university funds.

Interesting angle within this morning's Roy Burton followup story:

"After serving as the interim head coach in 2012, Sears signed a three-year contract extension after last season with certain performance clauses. If Sears does not win four games in 2013 or six in 2014, Weber State's administration has the option to release him without further compensation.

Five games remain in the 2013 season -- Montana State, at Portland State, Southern Utah, at Montana and Idaho State."
