Weber State Meets Southern Utah In The Beehive Bowl Saturday

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailCEDAR CITY, Utah-Saturday, the #3 in the FCS STATS poll Weber State Wildcats seek to keep their good standing in the NCAA FCS playoff standings as they visit Southern Utah for the annual Beehive Bowl game at Eccles Coliseum.By virtue of their 26-14 win over Sacramento State last Saturday at Stewart Stadium, the Wildcats improved to 7-2 overall and 5-1 in Big Sky Conference play and achieved their highest ranking in school history.The Wildcats are the winners of four straight games and have now won seven or more games for three consecutive seasons for the first time in school history.The Thunderbirds ensue in their disappointing season, coming off a 57-14 loss at the hands of the Montana Grizzlies, which dropped them to 1-8 and 1-5 in Big Sky Conference play.The Wildcats have also won eight of their last nine road contests in conference play and lead the Thunderbirds 17-8 all-time in a series dating back to 1984.The Thunderbirds joined the Wildcats as Big Sky brethren in 2012 and the teams have played annually since 2011 in a game that has come to be known as ‘The Beehive Bowl.’The Wildcats are still in line for a Big Sky conference title despite trailing 8-1 UC Davis, while the Aggies have surpassed them in the NCAA FCS playoff rankings.However, should Weber State win out, they will still be in good standing for a bye throughout the first week of the postseason.In order to ensure that, the Wildcats must likely win Saturday at Cedar City as well as the following Saturday at Idaho State.Recent history in this series is on the Wildcats’ side as the road team has won the last four games and seven of the last eight overall in the series.The Wildcats are also 6-2 all-time at Cedar City.
