Ogden newspaper: Weber loses to Griz

... Weber State turned the ball over six times and its losing streak reached double digits in a 42-6 loss to Montana on Saturday at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.

Junior running back Jordan Canada rushed for 189 yards and three touchdowns as Montana (9-2, 5-2 Big Sky) tuned up for its annual in-state rivalry game with Montana State next week.

The Wildcats (1-10, 0-7) lost their 10th consecutive game since winning their season opener and have only one more shot to get in the win column this year with a home game next Saturday against Idaho State. Weber State hasn't won in Missoula since 1987, a span of 14 losses in a row on the road at Montana.

... Despite turning the ball over three times in the first half, the Wildcats trailed only 14-6 at the break. Montana kicker Ben Worst missed two first-half field goal tries and McClain didn't, booting a 21-yarder to make it 7-3 and a 48-yarder as time expired.

Then Montana rushed for 194 yards in the third quarter alone, starting on its second series with an 80-yard race to the end zone by Canada. He broke one tackle and saw no one left to stop him. "We had a great plan," Weber State coach Jody Sears said. "I thought we made a great adjustment at halftime. We got off the field on that first series and then third-and-two, we went to our Bear front. We had everybody in position, we've just got to make plays." No one made a play to stop Canada and the Montana offense hit its stride.

... "We came probably as close as we have all year to playing a really fine football game on both offense and defense," Grizzlies coach Mick Delaney said. "First half, it took us a little while to get going, stumbled around a little bit and made a few mistakes, but man, we corrected those at halftime, the coaches did, and these young men went out and played incredible that second half. "Six turnovers in a game is unbelievable. We hawked the ball on defense, stripped it out of there, intercepted it, knocked it out, we got sacks today. We did the whole thing."

There were 23,609 fans announced in attendance for the return of former Grizzlies head coach Robin Pflugrad as Weber State's offensive coordinator; many of them were gone by the fourth quarter as the Grizzlies took command. "We ran this offense a couple years ago, so we knew all their trickeries," Montana linebacker JP Kanongata'a said. "We were expecting that, expecting screens, so we were ready to go up against that."

I thought that the Griz offense was pretty poor in the first half, and then only completed 1 pass in the second half.

:oops: sorry, I didn't intend to step on your toes.

IMHO that is defensive pass interference. DB is not making a play on the ball and is holding EH while the ball is in the air.

No worry. If eGrizers were wanting to see more pictures, I was letting them know. I only found one other story in Utah newspapers, except AP stories in the Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News.

When I was invited to post the news here, I was told to just post the links, because of copyright issues. It's certainly easier to read an article posted in full versus just a link, especially since many newspapers limit access to their site.
