Playing on Friday night for the first time in 50 years, the Cal Poly football team won 45-23 at Weber State. The teams played on Friday night in Ogden, Utah because of the LDS General Conference this weekend. The Mustangs improve to 5-0, 3-0 in the Big Sky. Weber State drops to 0-6, 0-3 in conference play.
Cal Poly was down 20-14 in the third quarter before outscoring the Wildcats 31-3 the rest of the way.
Quarterback Andre Broadous completed six of 11 passes for 99 yards but half of his completions were for touchdowns. The senior tossed touchdowns to slotback Kristaan Ivory, fullback Brandon Howe and wide receiver Willie Tucker. Howe started at fullback because Akinyene Umoh was out with a hamstring injury. Howe rushed nine times for 78 yards and another touchdown.
Ivory led the Cal Poly rushing attack with 89 yards on ten carries and a touchdown. The Mustangs rushed for a season low 246 yards. Weber State outgained Cal Poly 528 yards to 345 but the Wildcats settled for four field goal attempts and had one big turnover.
Cal Poly was up 21-20 late in the third quarter when defensive tackle Barrett Wangara returned an interception 58 yards for a touchdown. Defensive tackle Sullivan Grosz hit the quarterbacks arm as he threw to set up the interception return.
The 19th ranked Mustangs return home to face Northern Colorado next Saturday. The game against UNC will start at 6:00 and be televised on KSBY. The Bears are 1-3 overall with a home game against the University of Montana coming up on Saturday.
