Weber State appeared on two voter polls, a pair of East Coast writers, Mark Berman from The Roanoke Times and Jerry DiPaola from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. They each had Weber State at No. 25 on their ballots.

If the poll extended out, the 2-0 Wildcats would be No. 39 in the rankings.

BYU appeared on 12 pollsters’ ballots, placing them at No. 32 in voter points this week. The highest ranking was from Jerry Carino in Somerville, New Jersey. He ranked BYU No. 20 on his ballot while keeping San Diego State at No. 21.

BYU has a pair of home games this week against Southeastern Louisiana from the Southland Conference on Wednesday. Saturday night, BYU will host Morgan State at 7 p.m.

Weber State will make an international trip north to Canada for the inaugural Atlantic Slam. The Wildcats will face Gardner-Webb on Friday, Yale from the Ivy League on Saturday, and then close out the event with a game against Colgate on Sunday.
