Weber State looks for  gets 3rd straight win at tonight's homecoming against Portland State

Big doins in Ogden this evening, WSU Wildcats fans. Here's the Standard-Examiner lede, via Ace SE Sports Reporter Brandon Garside:

OGDEN — Fresh off a bye week, Weber State is geared up for homecoming Saturday night against Portland State.
The Wildcats (2-2) will go for their third-straight win of the season, a streak the purple and white haven’t achieved since 2010 in Ron McBride’s penultimate season.
The Vikings (2-3) are coming off a spectacular 2015 season that ended in the second round of the FCS Playoffs with a No. 6 national ranking. Now, PSU is 1-1 in conference play with a 45-20 win over Idaho State last week and a 45-31 loss to Southern Utah.
“We’ve got to be able to match their physicality. They’re tough. They’re not going to give up,” WSU head coach Jay Hill said. “They’re going to battle you to the bitter end so we’ve got to be ready to do the same things ourselves.

Read Mr. Garside's full story, Peeps:
If you can't make it to Stewart Stadium for tonight's big homecoming game, Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. and will be broadcast on KJZZ TV. It will also air on 1430 AM with Steve Klauke and former Wildcat David Hale on the call. Added bonus.  You can also catch tonight's live game video online, we're told, via Big Sky Sports, in the unlikely instances wherein you might be working late in your job cubicle (or prison cell), and/or had your Big Screen TeeVee "repoed."

Go Wildcats!

Update 10/8/16 9:00 P.M.:  The Wildcats slide by with another "thin" win, 14-10.  Bravo Wildcats!
