"For three quarters, we're in it," he said. "I'm proud of the way the guys started the game. They came out and they executed — great attitude, great energy, had some confidence, made some plays, got some confidence, went down and put some points on the board. So that was encouraging.

"We've just got to take these little, small victories and keep building on 'em," the Wildcats' coach said. "We're not going to make excuses for that fourth quarter, we're not going to cry and whine about it and kick rocks and, you know, woe is me. We've got to take these little, small victories and build on it and keep moving forward."

GAME NOTES: Weber State junior linebacker Anthony Morales recorded a career-high 17 tackles, and McClain's 46-yard field goal was a career-long kick. ... To add to the Wildcats' woes, junior safety/punter Tony Epperson, who led the nation in punting coming into the game with an average of 48 yards per kick, tore the MCL in his right knee in the third quarter and will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks.
