Quarterback Stefan Cantwell passed for two touchdowns and No. 23 Weber State forced four turnovers en route to a 17-3 victory over Cal Poly in a Big Sky Conference football game Saturday night before 9,324 inside Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

Cantwell, who threw for 182 yards, connected with David Jones on a 25-yard scoring pass midway through the first quarter and with Drew Batchelor for a 35-yard touchdown play six second into the final period for Weber State (5-2, 3-1 Big Sky).

Cal Poly (0-7, 0-4 Big Sky) turned the ball over four times, three on interceptions and one by a fumble. The Mustangs, who have scored in 213 consecutive games, were held to just a field goal for the third time during that run.

Trey Tuttle kicked a 37-yard field goal for Weber State midway through the third period and Casey Sublette prevented Cal Poly from being shut out for the first time since 1998, connecting on a 43-yard field goal with 1:17 to play in the first half.

Cal Poly was held to just 106 rushing yards and 73 yards passing for 179 yards of total offense. Weber State finished with 340 total yards, 158 on the ground and 182 through the air.

Mustang true freshman Broc Mortensen rushed for 52 yards on 12 carries and caught a pair of passes for 46 yards. Redshirt freshman quarterback Jake Jeffrey completed seven of 20 passes for 73 yards.

Treshawn Garrett was Weber State’s top rusher with 69 yards on 13 carries and Cantwell netted 54 yards on 11 trips. Cantwell was 14 of 23 through the air for 182 yards and his favorite receiver was tight end Andrew Vollert with four catches for 44 yards.

Cal Poly senior linebacker R.J. Mazolewski recorded 11 tackles, forced a fumble, broke up one pass and notched a quarterback hurry. Mark Reza and Dominic Frasch recovered Weber State fumbles and Kitu Humphrey earned his second interception of the year.

Cal Poly visits UC Davis (3-4, 1-3 Big Sky) in the Battle of the Golden Horseshoe next Saturday. The Aggies fell 45-31 to Northern Arizona in Flagstaff on Saturday.
