1. Weber State
It was a struggle for the Wildcats but they escaped past Southern Utah 19-16. RB Dontae McMillan had a huge day for WSU, rushing for 138 yards and a huge 4th quarter touchdown to tie the game. Next up for Weber State is at home vs Idaho State next week.
2. Eastern Washington
The Eagles come up with perhaps the most impressive win of the Big Sky season so far, with a 32-22 win over UC Davis. WR Talolo Limu-Jones was a monster with 10 catches, 154 yards and 2 touchdowns to lead the way. EWU wraps up the regular season vs Idaho in a week one rematch.
3. UC Davis
After coming in nationally ranked in the top 10, the stakes were high for the Aggies for the matchup vs Eastern Washington but they were unable to overcome the EWU offense. UCD drops to 3-2 to end their regular season.
4. Idaho State
In the in-state rivalry game, Idaho State comes out on top 24-22. Even with two interceptions, QB Tyler Vander Waal still threw for 393 yards and a touchdown to get the victory. Idaho State has a tough finish at Weber State coming up this Saturday.
5. Northern Arizona
After an off week, NAU will travel to Southern Utah this Saturday.
A very tough, hard fought loss to Idaho State puts the Vandals at 2-2. WR Hayden Hatton had 9 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown, yet couldn’t come up with heroics at the end. Idaho finishes the season the way it started against Eastern Washington, hoping for a similar ending.
7. Southern Utah
It was an impressive effort for Southern Utah against the nationally ranked Wildcats but the effort came up just short. The SUU defense held WSU to 4-15 on 3rd downs, a great effort from an outmatched Thunderbirds squad. Northern Arizona is the last game on the schedule for SSU.
