Weber State Football Game Day Thread: Idaho State v. Weber State

Wildcats hoping for bookend victory to end 2013

Our cellar-dwelling Weber State Wildcats (1-10, 0-7) close out their Big Sky Conference season at home this afternoon, where they'll host and almost equally downtrodden Idaho State Bengals (3-8, 1-6) football squad at 1:00 p.m. at Stewart Stadium. Looking at the bright side however, the Bengals are "riding" a 44-game "road" losing streak, and haven't beaten the Wildcats a Stewart Stadium since 1984.  Whew! We'll be keeping our fingers crossed, hoping history repeats.

Here's the pre-game setup from the Salt Lake Tribune and Idaho State Journal, reflecting each team's high hopes to end the season on a "happy" note:
And as an added bonus, the Standard's Roy Burton provides a little extra pre-game "tension":
Here's how the Vegas prognosticators see this game shaping up. Woopie! For the first time this season, as mere 3-1/12 point underdogs,our Wildcats won't be demoralized by crushing long odds:

'Cats fans who can't make it to the game can catch the game via the usual online sources, of course:
We'll keep the lights on for anyone who'd like to comment on the game, as per usual.

So what about it Wildcats fans?  Will our WSU Wildcats football squad exit Stewart Stadium later this afternoon in their happy place? Will Coach Sears keep his job?

Go Wildcats! 

Update 11/23/13 4:15 p.m.: Final Score: WSU 32, ISU 7.  Today's WSU victory is O So Sweet!

Update 11/24/13 11:30 p.m.:  Roy Burton provides two Standard-Examiner post-game reports:
Hearty congrats to our victorious Wildcats!
