Weber State and Boise State will battle it out in Wildcat Stadium Saturday night with the lead in the Big Sky Conference race hanging in the balance. Both teams go into Saturday's 7:30 p.m. battle with 1-0 Big Sky records and both are undefeated. Boise takes a perfect 3-0 mark-into the contest, while Weber is 2-0. The winner of Saturday's game moves to the top of the heap in conference football standings. Weber State officials are anticipating another record crowd. Last week a new stadium single game • attendance mark was established as the Northern Ari- zona game drew 14,171. With a break on the weather side, the Boise-Weber encounter could go over the 15,000 figure. The Wildcats will have several lineup .changes this week. Star quarterback Dale Mager is out for the season with a knee injury. Either John Edwards, Charlie Grayson or Dean Corbridge will get the call to replace Mager. : Center Doug-Smith is out with rib injuries an<Twill be replaced by Phil Howell. Jim Nichols, who racked up 111 yards rushing in the Northern Arizona game, is a likely starter at fullback replacing . Terry Bulych. Rick Bojak .and • Gary Baitahzor are the. other .two likely starters at the running back positions. .On" the defensive side, end Kevin McNeeley is pushing two- game starter Gordon Baxter and freshman Craig Holmstead is giving Russ - Lewandowski a .battle for a starting linebacker position., In other Big Sky Conference action Saturday, Montana entertains Idaho in a league game at Missoula and Northern Arizona hosts Drake at Flagstaff in a contest designated as a loop game for the Lumberjacks.

Weber heat North' Texas State in-its opener, 20-0 and defeated Northern Arizona last week, 23-7. •, Boise State is led by multitalented quarterback Eric Guthrie who does a little of every- thing for the Broncos. After three "games, the talented senior has connected on 33 of 87 passes for 500 yards and six touchdowns. Against Idaho, Guthrie was chosen Big Sky back of -the week after passing for 260 yards and three touch- •<icr>vns. . In addition to • his passing, Guthrie is a good runner and handles the punting, kickoff and extra point chores for the Broncos',.-Thus far, he is punting for a .41.1 average. Weber's defense will be geared to stop the passing of Guthrie, but it must also worry about containing three fine running backs.'. - - Gary Hoshaw, Pat Riley and Dan Dixon. Giants Overpower Padres Win Western Division Title 2B Standard-Examiner, Friday, Oct. 1,1971 Dodgers Tip Astros, But Fall Short United Prei* International The bridesmaid has made it to the altar. The San Francisco Giants, who became almost a joke •with their annual second- place finishes, had the last laugh Thursday night. Led by veterans Willie Mays and Juan Marichal and rookie Dave Kingman, the Giants overpowered the San Diego Padres 5-1 to win the National League's Western Division title by a game over the Los Angeles Dodgers as the 1971 baseball season came to a close. The Dodgers managed to defeat the Houston Astros 2-1 but it didn't matter since the Giants had wrapped things up about a half-hour earlier. San Francisco now plays host to Pittsburgh Saturday in the opener of a best-of-five series for the National League pennant. Oakland will be at Baltimore to open their best-of- five playoffs for the American League flag. DOUBLED IN ONE Mays, pushing his 40-year-old body to the breaking point, doubled in one run, scored another and stole two bases. Ilis outstanding performance came almost 20 .years to the day after he knelt on-deck as aj trembling rookie while Bobby Thomson hit his memorable two-out, three-run homer in the ninth inning to give the then New York Giants a pennant -•..

LMCOLN, Neb. — Utah State and Nebraska, both sporting perfect 3-0 records, will square off Saturday at 1:30 p.m. (CDT) in one of the nation's top football dashes. The No. 1 ranked Comhusk- ers are heavily favored to make the Aggies their fourth victim of the season. Nebraska holds victories over Oregon, Minnesota aoi Texas A&M, while Utah State lias turned back Kansas State, New Mexico State and Nevada-Las Vegas. The three straight wins is the best start for a Chuck Mills coached Aggie team. Coupled with two wins at the close of the 1970 season, Utah State is riding a five-game victory streak. Nebraska coach Bob Devaney warned his club this week, that Utah State is the most solid club the Buskers have faced so far this season. He said his scouts were especially impressed with the big, aggressive defensive unit. The Aggie defense received a severe jolt, however, this week when it was found that Dennis Ferguson suffered a broken hand .in the win over Nevada- Las Vegas and will be out indef- initley. Ferguson, a free safety, is the Aggies' kickoff return specialist. A crowd of sams 60,000 is expected for the game in Nebraska's Memorial Stadium. 27 games Paso, 14r6.
