After starting the season 1-1, coming back to beat D-2 Angelo State and falling to FBS SMU in a game that the Bobcats were capable of winning were it not for 5 turnovers leading to 23 points the Bobcats finally get a road win.  Those have been few and far between since 2005 and it did come easy or pretty.  Northern Colorado scored on the first play of the game, then went down 21 to 7 only to come back to tie the game at halftime.  Late in the 4th the Bobcats regained the lead 38-35 and were it not for a fumble by Northern Colorado on the Bobcat 1 yard line might have ended up losing the game. 

There were positives and negatives for the Bobcat defense.  Giving up 600 yards to Northern Colorado was the biggest negative.  Getting four turnovers, something the defense hasn't done well with in the first two games, was the biggest positive. 

There were also good things and bad things with the offense.  The offense doesn't have a problem scoring and new starter Clint Toon performed well but an interception when the Bobcats were on the verge of scoring to take the lead going into the half took some of the air out of the team that had been driving the ball well up to that point.

This week's game against Southern Utah should be a slam dunk for the Bobcats.  It's a home game, Cats always play well at home and Southern Utah, while performing well at times, is 1-3 coming into this game and has had offensive problems all season.  With that said as erratic as the Bobcats have played this season NO game is a slam dunk.
