1. Weber State
Weber State finishes the regular season undefeated at 5-0 with a close win over Idaho State. RB Daniel Wright ran it in from 6 yards out to give Weber the lead with 2:00 to go. Next up for Weber State will in all likelihood be a home FCS Playoff game.
2. Eastern Washington
Eastern Washington got revenge from their week 1 loss to Idaho this week, beating them 38-31. QB Eric Barriere threw for 309 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win that will surely put the Eagles into another FCS Playoff.
3. UC Davis
After being off for the final week of the regular season, UC Davis will wait and hope they get selected into the FCS Playoffs.
4. Idaho State
Coming up just short against top competition many times over the course of the season, Idaho State once again left it all on the field but couldn't pull out the victory. QB Tyler Vander Waal ended his season with a 268 yard day and a TD and a pick. IDST ends their season 2-4, but their talent proves better than their record.
5. Northern Arizona
Northern Arizona scrapes out one final victory this year over Southern Utah to end their season 2-2. QB Keondre Wudtee had an efficient outing of 23-35 passing, 289 yards and a touchdown. A .500 season is nothing to scoff at for Lumberjack fans, as they’ll try to springboard into an even better season come the Fall.
The Vandals could not quite replicate the glory they had in week 1 vs the Eastern Washington Eagles losing 38-31. RB Zach Borisch went off for Idaho with 33 carries, 205 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Idaho ends their season 2-3 but not without a lot of drama.
7. Southern Utah
Southern Utah drops a one score game to Northern Arizona 28-20. The Thunderbirds aren’t afraid to throw the rock with QB Justin Miller throwing it 54 times for 342 yards and 2 touchdowns. This ends a disappointing 1-4 spring season for Southern Utah.
