Samori Toure and Samuel Akem have combined for 2,258 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns while Jerry Louie-McGee has 59 receptions.

Dante Olson leads the Montana Grizzlies with 165 tackles, Patrick O'Connell has 6.5 sacks and Alex Gubner has four interceptions.
The Weber State Wildcats have also won 10 games and are coming off a tight contest against Kennesaw State. The Weber State Wildcats have won all seven home games this season. Jake Constantine is completing 63.2 percent of his passes for 1,967 yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Constantine and Kaden Jenks have combined for 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Conner Mortensen leads the Weber State Wildcats with 83 tackles, George Tarlas has nine sacks and Ja’Kobe Harris has three interceptions.
The Montana Grizzlies are a really scary team with a polished quarterback and the way they absolutely destroyed Southeastern Louisiana should have everyones attention. The Montana Grizzlies also deserve some love after beating this very Weber State team a month ago, 35-16. However, it's important to note that the game was played in Missoula on Senior Day, and this contest will be played in Utah. The Weber State Wildcats are a perfect 7-0 SU at home this season and have won 13 of their last 14 home games overall. The Weber State Wildcats have to take better care of the football to have a chance here, but they certainly can pull it off and there's no reason to turn down the free field goal given the success they've had at home the last couple of years.
