Cal Poly pulls away to beat Weber State 45-23

OGDEN, Utah (AP) Andre Broadous threw a career-high three touchdown passes, defensive tackle Barrett Wangara returned an interception 58 yards for a score late in the third quarter and undefeated Cal Poly pulled away to beat winless Weber State 45-23 on Friday night.

Broadous completed 6 of 11 passes for 99 yards for the Mustangs (5-0, 3-0 Big Sky). Kristaan Ivory had 10 carries for 89 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for 30 yards and another score, and Brandon Howe ran nine times for 78 yards and a touchdown and had three receptions for 23 yards and another touchdown.

C.J. Tuckett led Weber State (0-6, 0-3) in rushing with 98 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Mike Hoke was 22 of 39 for 291 yards.

Cal Poly scored 17 points in a 3:58 span late in the third quarter and early in the fourth. Wangara started the spree with his interception return, Bobby Zalud made a 44-yard field goal, and Broadous made it 38-20 with a 34-yard scoring pass to Willie Tucker. After Weber State's Shaun McClain made a 25-yard field goal, Howe scored on a 37-yard run to complete the scoring.

Tuckett scored on a 6-yard run to give Weber State a 20-14 lead early in the third quarter, and Cal Poly regained the lead on Ivory's 5-yard run.

Cal Poly led 14-13 at the half.

Broadous threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Ivory to give Cal Poly a 7-6 early lead in the second quarter, Weber State pulled ahead on Hoke's 9-yard pass to Erik Walker, and Broadous countered with an 8-yard scoring pass to Howe. McClain made 22- and 46-yard field goals in the first quarter.

How's the knee? Trent Williams looks beyond ready in workout videos

How's the knee? Trent Williams looks beyond ready in workout videos

Trent Williams went under the knife for his first-ever knee surgery about seven months ago.

Plenty of Redskins fans worried that the Pro Bowl left tackle might not be ready to go when the 2018 season starts.

Worry no more. 

Yes, that is Williams working out with veteran running back Adrian Peterson. And by the looks of it, Williams' knee looks just fine. 

Williams tore his right patella tendon last fall, but continued to play through the pain while the Redskins chances of a playoff bid remained. Once that window got firmly closed after an ugly Thursday night loss in Dallas, Williams contemplated sitting out, but other injuries on the line had already decimated the Redskins. Eventually, Williams shut down his season after a blowout loss in Los Angeles to open December. 

This offseason, Williams got the knee repaired. Washington coach Jay Gruden said repeatedly during the offseason that he expected Williams ready to go for training camp, and the workout videos suggest that to be the case.

This is great news for the Redskins offense, and for new quarterback Alex Smith. Expect Washington to be cautious with Williams, particularly in the early going of training camp in Richmond, but like Trent tweeted, "the walk says it all."

What to eat at the 2018 MLB All-Star FanFest

What to eat at the 2018 MLB All-Star FanFest

Before we begin, let's make one thing clear: if you're going to the MLB All-Star Game FanFest to eat, you're already doing something wrong.

There isn't really any good food there, but there are some interesting options. You can, of course, get a bunch of fried food and traditional ballpark fare. But you also have some more intriguing options, if you're feeling adventurous.

You could get what one concession stand claims to be an "Old City Style Philly Cheese Steak," some jerk chicken, various subs or even sushi, among other things.

But you're in D.C. for the day, and you only want to spend $40 on lunch for you and your date so you can still go out for what's sure to be an overpriced dinner.

The safest bet is to go to the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog stand and grab a pair of hot dogs for $7 each. There's a reason Joey Chestnut can eat 74 of these babies in 10 minutes. Having only spent $14 on your main course, you've still got money left over for drinks and a desert.

If you're over 21, there's a whole corner of the convention hall set up with a selection of adult beverages ranging between $6 and $7. If you're not, there's some fresh-squeezed lemonade at a nearby stand for only $5 — unless you want a large, that's $8.

Whatever you choose, it's time to head to the Dippin' Dots stand for dessert. They don't call it the ice cream of the future for nothing. This $6, five-ounce cup of ice cream pellets (it's better than it sounds) will soak up the rest of your lunch budget.

Riskier (and also more expensive) options include a $12 jerk, pineapple or curry chicken bowl or a variety of rice bowls from Hanaro Sushi for $15 apiece. Either of these choices will likely eliminate dessert from your meal, but who really wants dessert with lunch anyway?

When all is said and done, you're probably not getting a gourmet meal out of this experience, but you can at least enjoy a not-bad meal while you explore some of the interesting things about baseball.
