  10/24/21 - Bronson BarronSo/2024, Weber State, 6-2, 210 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Kris Jackson ran for three touchdowns and Weber State converted four times on fourth down to shock Eastern Washington, which missed an extra point with 2:51 remaining, 35-34 on Saturday. After the Eagles, ranked second in the FCS coaches poll, converted a turnover into a touchdown with Dennis Merritt's second touchdown run, a high snap led to Seth Harrison's extra point missing to the left. Backup quarterback Randall Johnson busted loose for a 14-yard run and Dave Jones got free for another 32 to allow Weber State, which won the last four Big Sky Conference titles, to run out the clock and stun the homecoming crowd. EWU had won 20 straight at home.

After Johnson's last touchdown, with 8:43 to play, Weber got what proved to be the winning points on a 2-point conversion. The Wildcats (3-4, 2-2), who lost to three top-12 FCS teams and Utah, piled up 482 yards despite losing quarterback Bronson Barron after he threw for 226 through three quarters. Jackson ran for 93 yards and Jones 69 as Weber wore down EWU by holding the ball 10 1/2 minutes longer. Eastern Washington (7-1, 4-1) had 434 yards, but that was almost 200 below its nation-leading average (628.1). Eric Barriere threw for 245 yards, 201 below his average, and ran for 85, which gave him the conference career record for total offense (13,558 yards). Barriere ran for two touchdowns and threw for one but lost for the first time at home in 17 starts. - Weber State/AP College Football

  Kylan Weisser threw two touchdown passes and added a pair of TD runs to help Weber State beat Cal Poly 38-7 on Saturday night. Weisser was 11-of-16 passing for 143 yards, completing at least one pass to 10 different receivers. He capped a 12-play, 79-yard drive to open the game with a 1-yard touchdown run and scored on a 4-yard run early in the second quarter to make it 14-7 and Weber State (2-3, 1-1 Big Sky) led the rest of the way. Weisser threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Dave Jones midway through the period and Winston Reid's strip-sack of Cal Poly's Jackson Pavitt led to a 2-yard fumble return for a score by B.J. Taulele that made it 28-7 with 42 seconds left in the half. Cal Poly (1-4, 0-2), finished with just 115 total yards, has lost four straight since a season-opening win over San Diego. - AP College Football

  Jay Hill's team is getting a Power Five program talent.

On Dec. 9, Allen said he had entered the NCAA transfer portal, with the intention of finishing his last two years as a tight end/wide receiver at another school. The 6-foot-4, 238-pounder has been well-traveled in his college career, as Weber State would be his fourth school. He started off at UC Davis - which, like the Wildcats is a member of the Big Sky Conference - before transferring to junior college program City College of San Francisco after a redshirt year in 2016. - Deseret News

  12/30/20 - Randal GrimesrSr/2022, Weber State, 6-3, 205 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  UNLV wide receiver Randal Grimes has entered the NCAA's transfer portal. The 6-foot-4-inch, 205-pounder from Desert Pines High was suspended for the entire 2020 season. Grimes chose Southern Cal as a four-star recruit out of high school but transferred to UNLV after two seasons with the Trojans. Grimes was granted immediate eligibility to play for the Rebels and shone in his only season on the field. He led UNLV with 44 catches for 696 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore in 2019. UNLV coach Marcus Arroyo declined to comment on the reason for Grimes' suspension when it was announced in November, other than to say it was for a violation of "team or school rules." - Las Vegas Review

  12/16/20 - Josh OlaverSr/2022, Weber State, 5-10, 190 (DS#105 CB) + More +

  Azusa Pacific is ending its football program this month after 55 years of Division II and NAIA competition. Athletic director Gary Pine said the decision was prompted by other four-year schools in California dropping the sport over the last 30 years, giving Azusa Pacific fewer in-state opponents to play, which led to higher travel costs. In 2019, the Cougars had to fly to all six of their road games, making them the only Division II or III school in the country forced to do that. Azusa Pacific is the only Division II or NAIA school in California that still had football. In 1975, there were 37 schools in the state that played football; now it's 17. Only Chapman University in Orange in 1994 has added the sport. - AP College Football

  UNLV wide receiver Randal Grimes has been suspended through the end of the calendar year, UNLV coach Marcus Arroyo said Tuesday. "Randal Grimes is not with us for team or school rules," Arroyo said. "And I'll keep the terms of that in-house out of respect for him as an athlete." Grimes, a junior from Desert Pines High, led the Rebels with 44 catches for 696 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore last season after transferring from Southern California. He has not played in either of the first two games this season. Arroyo also announced that wide receiver Mekhi Stevenson, defensive backs Drew Tejchman and Greg Francis, and fullback Jamal Neal have opted out of this season because of the coronavirus pandemic. "(Those four) are currently still part of the team, but they are opting out of the COVID year," Arroyo said. - Las Vegas Review Journal
