Don't look at Weber State's record, look at its schedule.
Sacramento State's homecoming opponent Saturday is 0-6 overall and 0-3 in the Big Sky Conference. But the Wildcats have played Football Bowl Subdivision teams Fresno State and BYU, and nationally ranked Football Championship Subdivision teams McNeese State, Eastern Washington and Cal Poly.
Hornets coach Marshall Sperbeck isn't looking at the Weber State record. He's been looking at game film and wondering how the Wildcats are still searching for a win in 2012.
In Weber State's 45-23 loss last week to undefeated Cal Poly, Weber State ran 95 plays and amassed 528 yards of offense.
"Weber State has had a tough schedule; played BYU and Fresno State and three ranked FCS teams," Sperbeck said in his weekly Big Sky Conference coaches media call. "They're a very good football team. It's just a matter of time before they get things going the right direction, and we certainly hope that's not this weekend."
The Hornets (4-2, 2-1) have won four of their past five games and are off to their best start in the Division I-AA/FCS era. Their 27-22 win last Saturday at Southern Utah was the team's third consecutive on the road. That matches the longest streak since the 1991 team opened the season. A victory over Weber State would extend the team's overall win streak to three games and give Sac State its best start to a season since the 1992 team opened 5-2.
Badger honored Sac State senior linebacker Jeff Badger received his first Big Sky co-Defensive Player of the Week award for his efforts against Southern Utah.
Badger led the Hornets with 12 tackles, including five solo. He also had a sack and secured the victory with an interception in the final minutes.
Badger ranks third on the team with 44 tackles and is tied for the team lead with two interceptions. His 171 career tackles are 20th in school history.
Aggies get a vote UC Davis scoring 24 unanswered points against the nation's No. 2 FCS team, yet still losing, apparently was enough to earn a vote in this week's national rankings by the Sports Network.
The Aggies lost 48-41 at home to Montana State but staggered their visitors and impressed a voter enough to give the 2-4 Aggies a Top-25 vote.
Despite the loss, the Aggies scored 41 points against the vaunted Montana State defense. It was the most points scored by UCD in a loss since falling to Bloomsburg (Pa.) 56-48 in the 2000 NCAA Division II semifinals.
The Aggies now face an Idaho State defense that gave up 758 yards (437 rushing) in a 77-10 thumping by Portland State last week.
