Cal Poly: No. 12 Cal Poly Falls to No. 5 Sam Houston State in FCS Playoffs, 18-16
Sam Houston State, among the top 10 teams in the Football Championship Subdivision in rushing offense, total offense and scoring offense, was held to just 18 points by the Cal Poly defense Saturday afternoon. The Bearkats, however, took advantage of three Cal Poly turnovers, a blocked punt and a trio of personal foul penalties to earn an 18-16 victory over the Mustangs in a second-round NCAA Division I FCS playoff game at Elliott T. Bowers Stadium.
