Weber State football: Playoff-hopeful Wildcats face final home game

OGDEN — Weber State's football team, struggling through a two-game losing skid, tries to get back on the winning track Saturday when the Wildcats host Cal Poly in their final home game of the season.

WSU (5-4, 4-2 Big Sky Conference) takes on the nationally-ranked Mustangs (6-3, 4-2) at 12:07 p.m. in Stewart Stadium, where 17 Weber State seniors will play the final home game of their collegiate careers.

And this showdown shapes up as a crucial late-season clash and an elimination game of sorts between two teams that are both challenging for an at-large berth in this year's national FCS playoffs.

Cal Poly, ranked 16th in the latest STATS poll, has beaten the Wildcats in their last three meetings, including a 30-24 decision the last time they met, in 2014, in Ogden.

The Mustangs' forte' is their running game which averages 370 yards per game — second-best in the nation.

Saturday's game will be televised live throughout Utah on KJZZ TV, with Dave Fox, Alema Harrington and Tony Parks calling the action.
