Rivalry week is here

No. 5 vs. No. 16.
State school vs. a UC.
A top-five offense going up against a top-five defense.
Great West Football Conference foes Cal Poly vs. UC Davis, the two longtime rivals who split the league title a year ago.
At sold-out Alex G. Spanos Stadium on Saturday.
Does it get any better than this?
If you’re one of the 8,000 or so fans who have a ticket for this game, it should be a good one.
It’s a matchup of one of Division I-AA’s best defense units against a pass-happy Aggies squad that is in the final year of transition from Division II but already looks like a playoff-caliber program.
Cal Poly’s defense is ranked third in the division in yards allowed and ranked No. 1 against the pass and No. 1 in points allowed.
UC Davis, which isn’t officially included in the Division I-AA statistical categories until next season, would rank fourth in passing, 12th in total offense and No. 21 in scoring if included.
Winner goes home with the Golden Horseshoe.
