Cal Poly visited Cal for Round 1 in the Western Bracket and the Mustangs started the game on the front foot and using their kicking game to test the Bears.

A Coby Baker penalty attempt drifted wide, and after a few minutes Cal finally got into Mustangs territory. A short pass while being hit by Evan Weigold to Oliver Newall put Newall through for a 25-meter jaunt and try.

Decades-long rivals Saint Mary's and Cal meet up in Moragain a game that has massive playoff and rankings implications.

After losing games to BYU and Army, Cal has once again performed a turnaround, beating #1-ranked Navy in Berkeley last week to shake up the entire D1A pecking order.

If there has been a knock on Saint Mary's it's been that they haven't played a lot of the major teams in the D1A Top 10.

That changed this weekend as the Gaels traveled to Provo and beat BYU 38-21 in a wild one where Saint Mary's seemed in total control, only to be reminded that there's no such thing.

In a game that lived up to the hype #7 Saint Mary’s defeated #8 Central Washington by a single point, 27-26.

Playing in Ellensburg, Wash., Saint Mary’s spent the vast majority of the first 25 minutes inside the CWU 22. They came close to getting a try, getting held up at one point, but CWU’s defense was tenacious.

In a meeting of two highly-ranked D1A teams Saint Mary's defeated Arizona 48-15 in Moraga.

It was, thankfully, finally good weather in Northern California and set the scene for an intense match, and it was. Competitive, hard-hitting, and at times chippy, the game was a good reminder for both teams how tough it gets as the season progresses.
