OGDEN, Utah – The No. 13 Weber State Wildcats made some major noise in the FCS world Saturday night with a 14-6 win over No. 3 Eastern Washington.

After the offense scored all their points in the first quarter, the Wildcats defense stood firm against Eastern Washington, holding them to just 247 yards all game. The Eagles were also held to just two 3rd down conversions on 17 attempts.

The scoring began on a 75-yard punt return for a score by Josh Davis, who was recently added to the Jerry Rice Award watch list which honors the nation’s top freshman.

A few possessions later, Jake Constantine connected with Rahid Shaheed for a touchdown strike.

After the Eagles kicked a pair of field goals to cut into the lead, the Wildcats defense came up with a pair of huge plays in the fourth quarter to keep the Eagles at bay. On third down on the Wildcats’ 8-yard line, Juwain Harrison picked off Eric Barriere with 9:43 remaining to eliminate the Eagles’ best chance at a touchdown.

Later, with less than three minutes remaining in the game, the Wildcats again picked off Barriere, this time it was Landon Stice that made the play.

The Wildcats (4-2, 2-1) will next face Montana State Saturday at 4 p.m. at Stewart Stadium.
