Weber State football: Wildcats start 0-3 for first time since 2007

"We were pretty much shooting ourselves in the foot with penalties or bad decisions by me or something that always seemed to kill a drive," said WSU quarterback Mike Hoke, who managed to complete just 9-of-19 passes for a paltry 69 yards, which included a 10-yard TD toss to Shaydon Kehano. Hoke was sacked three times.

Weber State punter Tony Epperson was again a bright spot, breaking a school record by averaging 55 yards on eight punts. And Danny Mullarkey recovered two fumbles for the WSU defense.

The Wildcats made the final score look much more respectable by scoring two touchdowns in the final four minutes. C.J. Tuckett went 2 yards for a touchdown with 3:50 to go, and backup quarterback Jordan Adamczyk added a 3-yard TD run of his own with 20 seconds left.

But adding injury to insult, Kehano — Weber's leading receiver with six catches for 80 yards and a touchdown — suffered a possible fractured fibula in his right leg on the next-to-last WSU scoring drive. He will be re-evaluated on Monday.
