Coach Mac's 100th win is a shutout

GREELEY, Colo. — Receiver Bryant Eteuati scored two touchdowns, and Weber State defeated Northern Colorado 23-0 Saturday to ruin homecoming for the winless Bears.

The win was the 100th in WSU coach Ron McBride's career as a head coach. After earning 88 victories as the University of Utah's head coach, he now has a dozen with the Wildcats.

His career coaching mark now stands at 100-79 in 16 years as a head coach.

Eteuati finished with 146 receiving yards for Weber State (2-4, 2-2 Big Sky Conference), which pulled away with a 16-point burst in the second quarter.

Eteuati's first touchdown was set up when he returned a punt 24 yards to Northern Colorado's 32. Brendon Doyle's pass to Eteuati on the very next play was good for a touchdown with 12:52 to go in the second quarter.

Northern Colorado (0-7, 0-3) couldn't move the ball on its next possession, and the Wildcats got the ball back at their own 41. Trevyn Smith rushed for 59 yards to give Weber State its second touchdown in just over a minute. Smith finished with 113 rushing yards.

Mike Snoy's 28-yard field goal with 56 seconds to go in the first half made it 16-0.

Cameron Higgins threw a 22-yard pass to Eteuati for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Doyle was 11-for-19 passing for 149 yards with an interception. Higgins connected on 7-of-8 passes for 72 yards.

Weber State had 393 yards on offense, compared to 133 for the Bears.

Northern Colorado quarterback Dominic Breazeale was 11-for-26 passing for 92 yards with an interception. He was sacked four times.

The shutout was the first for Weber State in a Big Sky Conference game since 1980 and the first conference shutout on the road since the 1966 season.

Smith's 59-yard run was Weber State's first rushing touchdown of the season. He also had his second 100-yard rushing game in as many weeks with 113 yards on 24 carries.
