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:
Las Vegas oddsmakers provide no pre-game solace, with the Wildcats installed as 26-1/2 point underdogs:

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?
