Cal Poly football completed a disappointing season with its fourth straight loss. The Mustangs lost at #12 Weber State 47-14.
Cal Poly struck first on its first possession. Tony Smith hit David Mahr for a 28-yard touchdown reception to give the Mustangs a 7-0 lead. But it was all Weber State from there. The Wildcats scored 38 points unanswered and led 38-7 at halftime.
Junior quarterback Cameron Higgins threw four touchdown passes and senior running back Trevyn Smith cracked the 5,000-yard mark in career . Higgins passed for 364 yards as Weber State improved to 7-4 and maintained its NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision playoff hopes.
Cal Poly finished its 2009 season with a 4-7 record and its fourth straight loss, the first time since 2002 that the Mustangs had lost four consecutive games.
Cal Poly's leaders offensively were Jake Romanelli with 55 yards rushing on 15 carries and Smith, who completed 11 of 24 passes for 166 yards and both Mustang touchdowns. He was sacked five times and threw a pair of interceptions.
Cal Poly went 0-6 on the road this season, the first time since 1998 that the Mustangs were winless away from Alex G. Spanos Stadium. The 1998 squad also was 0-6.
The Mustangs were looking to avenge last year's FCS first round playoff home loss. But in the end, the Wildcats won their second straight over Cal Poly.
