Cal Poly Not Resting on Cal Win
Colleges - Men's DI College


Cal Poly, fresh off a 22-20 win over Cal just over a week ago, travels to Moraga, Calif. Saturday to face another top-ranked opponent in St. Mary’s. Currently ranked fourth in the nation, St. Mary’s is coming off a 76-19 win over UCLA last weekend.

Although the win against the Bears was a memorable one, Mustangs captain David Schaefer knows it is not a time to get carried away.  

“It was a great win by the guys, but it’s just one win, and seasons aren’t made up of just single wins.” Schaefer said.

“We’ve had a great rivalry against St. Mary’s so far this season, they’ve tipped us in a couple of very tight 7s matches, so we’re really excited about the game this Saturday, as it’s our chance to settle the score.”

The Mustangs have made a few changes from the team that beat Cal. Senior second rower Bobby McNeal returns to the field along with Senior back rower Joe Saldana.

The only injury replacement for the game is Junior Alex Frost who comes in for sophomore fullback Dom Ferri. Ferris is still resting from a concussion he sustained against the Bears. Landis Nasser, who was selected to the all-tourney team of the 7s National Championships in Texas last December, will take Ferri’s spot at fullback with Frost moving to the wing.

Kickoff is set for 1pm PST.
