UMaine football defeats Weber State 23-18

The 2018 Black Bears are boldly going where no UMaine football team has gone before – the FCS semifinals.

They are doing so courtesy of a 23-18 victory over Weber State. The seventh-ranked Black Bears took down the second-ranked Wildcats, thanks in large part to a phenomenal defensive effort and a few opportunistic plays by the offense. The win means that they’ll be heading to the West Coast for another showdown, this time on the red turf (also known as “The Inferno”) of the Eastern Washington Eagles in Cheney, Washington.

The Black Bears won their seventh game in a row with this one; it also marked their seventh consecutive victory when facing a ranked opponent. This UMaine team is one that has no fear and believes that it can play with any team in the country – because they can.

That was certainly the case with Weber State, an excellent team that was handled quite efficiently by the Black Bears.

The Black Bears – seeded seventh overall in FCS - now sit at 9-3 and head to Ogden, Utah next, where they will take on the second-seeded Weber State Wildcats.
