Cantwell, defense lead Weber State to 17-3 win over Cal Poly
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — Stefan Cantwell had 236 total yards and passed for two touchdowns to help Weber State beat Cal Poly 17-3 Saturday night.
Cantwell was 14-of-23 passing for 182 yards with one interception and had 11 carries for 54 yards while the Weber State (5-2, 3-1 Big Sky Conference) defense forced four turnovers and four three-and-outs.
Kawika Tupuola sacked Jake Jeffrey on fourth-and-2 and, five plays later, Cantwell hit David Jones for a 26-yard touchdown and then ran in to 2-point conversion to make it 8-0 with 5:37 left in the first quarter. Cal Poly’s Casey Sublette hit a 43-yard field goal just before halftime and Trey Tuttle made a 37-yarder early in the third quarter to make it 11-3. Drew Batchelor’s 35-yard TD catch with 14:54 to play capped the scoring.
Cal Poly (0-7, 0-4) has lost eight in a row overall, dating to a 35-21 loss to San Diego in the 2016 FCS playoffs, and its seven-game skid is longest single-season losing streak since going 0-10 in 1965. The Mustangs, who led the FCS in rushing yards per game each of the previous four seasons, were limited to a season-low 106 on 41 carries.
