ST. GEORGE — SUU lost a close game to the Cal Poly Mustangs on Saturday 24-21.

“Tough loss, I didn’t have the guys ready to play,” head coach Demario Warren said. “We weren’t prepared, and we fell behind early. You don’t want to fall behind early to Cal Poly with the wind. They made one more play than we did, and they won the football game.”

The wind affected SUUs decision making early as they got into FG range but decided to go for it on fourth and four. The Thunderbirds were unable to convert, and the Mustangs took over on downs.

Cal Poly proceeded to march down the field, kicking a field goal into the wind to make it 3-0, and that would be the only score of the first quarter.
