OGDEN -- Defending Big Sky champion Weber State ranked seventh in the pre-season FCS National Poll. Ron McBride and his wildcats were picked to finish second in the Big Sky this season.
They open up at Wyoming a week from Saturday. It promises to be a good test for the Wildcats' high-powered offense.
"A lot of people, I'm sure, are not counting on us winning, you know, not betting on Weber State. But we are," said running back Trevyn Smith. "I always love playing the big guys. I mean, you wouldn't be a competitor unless you loved playing the big guys.
Quarterback Cameron Higgins said, "I'm excited to go up there and see what we're made of and how we stack up against D-1 teams."
"They've (Wyoming) got a new coach, a new system, you know. And I think the guy's a very good football coach and has some really top-notch assistants," said Weber State Head Coach Ron McBride. "I think they'll be a very good football team."
The season-opener starts Saturday, Sept. 5, at 1 p.m. in Laramie and can be heard on KLO 1430 AM.
