Weber State Home Opener: Weber State University Hosts North Dakota State - Updated

As for us, folks, we smell an upset coming up... Go Wildcats!

There will be "big doin's" at Weber State University's Stewart Stadium this evening, as the "first season of the Jay Hill era at WSU begins." Specifically, our Weber State University Wildcats host Missouri Valley Football Conference  heavyweight North Dakota State Bison for a planned 6 p.m. kickoff tonight, for the first home game of the 2014 Wildcats season.

The Bison arrive with one non-conference victory tucked under their belt, with last week's defeat of perennial Big 12 conference also-ran Iowa State,  while the 'Cats are looking for their first season win, after last week's not-so-embarrasing beatdown at the hands of USA Today poll #16 rated Arizona State, of the PAC-12 Conference.

There's lots of pregame hype, as the the Standard and the Trib "go ape" over the prospects of today;s Stewart Stadium home opener:
Even KSL News is getting in on the act:
As an added bonus, here's one most-excellent pre-game writeup from the WSU website:

Games's tied 7-7, with a little more than a minute left in the first quarter. The Wildcats are playin' great, so far.

Now WSU gets a second pick! Score's stitl tied 7-7 in the second period. That's two NDSU turnovers, 'Cats fans!

Oops! The Bison add 7 points to the scoreboard, due to an unfortunate WSU fumble.

So much for >this bullshit"

"This game is going to be a mess. NDSU may get to 40 points before halftime. I'm not kidding."
