Weber State Football Game Day Special: WSU v. Montana State

We know of course what "true" Weber State gridiron fans will be doing this afternoon -- that's right, sitting in the stadium, decked out in purple

It's game day on the Weber State campus, where our  Weber State Wildcats (1-6, 0-2 Big Sky) will host their first home game in three weeks versus their Big Sky Conference opponent, the Montana State Bobcats (4-2, 2-0) in this afternoon's gridiron contest. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. at Stewart Stadium. The beleaguered WSU Wildcats certainly have their work cut out for them for their seventh week running. "In addition to their current six-game losing slide, the Wildcats have lost 10 of their last 11 games against the Bobcats and haven't beaten them at Stewart Stadium since 1996," the Standard's Roy Burton grimly reports in this morning's pregame writeup:
With former University of Montana coach Robin Pflugrad now serving as Weber State’s first-year offensive coordinator, the Billings Independent Record provides a story with that "local" twist, at least for Montanans:
And sadly, the  Las Vegas oddsmakers provide no pre-game solace, with the Wildcats installed as 26-1/2 point underdogs:

Catch the real-time live streaming audio, Wildcats faithful, whether you make it to the game or not:
Cable subscribers who don't have the "true grit" to get to the stadium on a day that's shaping up with great football weather, can of course watch the game on the Roots Sports Network.

We know what "true" Weber State gridiron fans will be doing this afternoon. That's right, sitting in the stadium, decked out in purple, to be sure.

Ok, Wildcat fans, repeat after us:

Miracles can happen... GO WILDCATS!

Update 10/19/13 5:04 P.M.: Score at the end of the half, MSU 19, WSU 10.  Lookin' at the bright side, it ain't half as bad as it looks at this early juncture, as both the WSU offense and defense are playing well... and WELL, the game's only half over.

Update 10/19/13 7:01 P.M.: Final Score: MSU 34, WSU 16.  So taking into account the contractual landscape, it's time to at least consider hiring a new WSU head coach, don'tcha think?

Update 10/20/13 6:45 a.m.:  Roy Burton provides the post-game story:

Glad to see that everyone hasn't given up on our WSU Wildcats.

Naturaly I'll be over praying at the WSU Mormon Center, pryaying on my knees that you'll lose this bet, LOL

WSu is up 10-6 at the end of the First Quarter.

And NO! We are not making this up.

At least their final score was in double digits.

And yeah. They DID beat the spread.
