Western Illinois Leathernecks (8-3)


W. Illinois to visit Weber St. in first-round matchup

(STATS) - In what has to be one of the most intriguing first-round matchups, Western Illinois at Weber State figures to be a battle of strength versus strength - no matter who has possession.

That's because the ninth-ranked Leathernecks and the 11th-ranked Wildcats will have their share of standouts on both sides of the ball Saturday when Weber State will try to advance to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

"This is a great team coming in here and we're super excited about the matchup," Wildcats coach Jay Hill said. "If you're going to make a run in the playoffs, you're going to have to play some really hard teams and this is a great first-round opponent for us because they're just that. It will prepare us for future success down the road if we can take care of business."
