The 49ers marked their move up in the fall with games against what was probably their toughest conference opponents, Saint Mary's and Cal Poly. Not surprisingly, they lost. But last week's 35-15 win over UC Santa Barbara showed that they are most certainly a team to watch in this league.
Cal Poly followed up one big-scoring game with another as the Mustangs beat Santa Clara 78-21.
Led by another impressive showing from captain and inside center Coby Baker and hard running and strong defense from No. 8 Ryan Wenstrom, Cal Poly improved to 2-0 in the California Conference.
Texas beat previously unbeaten TCU 38-0 in Red River Conference play Saturday.
For the Longhorns, this was a nice step forward as they moved to 3-0 in the conference and in a solid position to remain atop the standings.
Fullback Aleander Teague scored two tries for Teas while scrumhalf Theo Quay, flanker Jack Slaney, lock Tom Marlow, and wing Guy Leroux all scored one try.
