UCD NOTEBOOK: Creadick and Wright are a dynamic duo

By
October 31, 2010 |

Enterprise staff writer

Quarterback Randy Wright, a UC Davis redshirt freshman, has handled the pressure well.

After being thrown to the wolves when predecessor Greg Denham suddenly left school to pursue his religious mission, Wright has passed for 1,711 yards and nine touchdowns while throwing only six picks.

Now, it looks like he and wideout Sean Creadick are reading the same page, at least during the last five games Ñ four of which have resulted in 100-yard games for the personable Camarillo High graduate Creadick.

With three games remaining, Creadick has 55 grabs for 710 yards. He was targeted 15 times in SaturdayÕs 55-24 setback to Southern Utah. He did catch nine of those passes for 134 yards and a 44-yard touchdown.

Going into the weekend, Creadick was ranked 14th among NCAA Division I FCS receivers for receptions per game (6.57). His 82 yards an outing put him 22nd in the land.

Wright came into Saturday ranked 47th among FCS signal-callers. His 278-yard night should move him up the charts, too.

Season changer: When Southern Utah won Saturday, it meant a Great West Conference football title for the Thunderbirds and sent last yearÕs defending champs Ñ UC Davis Ñ on a fact-finding mission: What to play for the rest of 2010?

Next Saturday itÕs off to North Dakota for a Great West game that seemingly means only prideful bragging rights.

The following week, the Aggies travel to Cal Poly for the Battle for the Golden Horseshoe. On Nov. 20, UCD hosts Sacramento State in the Causeway Classic. For some teams, these are games that might only add to the local trophy case.

But Aggie coach Bob Biggs says, they mean waaaaay more, and his teamÕs focus Òwill be on having a winning season.Ó Sweep the final three and Davis finishes 6-5 with a GWC mark of 3-1. Biggs knows winning records are always something to build upon.

Hmmm, 6-5? Not bad considering the overnight shift at quarterback and an early season drubbing at D-I neighbor Cal.

Good battle: Southern Utah won its fifth game in 15 meetings with UCD. The Aggies had won four of the last five games. The last time the T-Birds were a champion was when they tied Davis for the old America West crown.

Southern Utah University has evolved over the years. First, the Cedar City school was a high school, founded in 1897. Then it became a

college in 1923. The original mascot was the Bronco, but when SU College Ñ a two-year institution Ñ became SU University (the four-year version), the school adopted the Thunderbird. SUU has 8,066 students.

FCS title game shift: Frisco, Texas, will be the host of this yearÕs NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title game. Frisco emerged from a pool of several cities that submitted bids.

Hosted by the Southland Conference, Frisco will be the title gameÕs home for the next three years. This seasonÕs game will be played at Pizza Hut Park on Jan. 7, and will be the end-game of a newly expanded 20-team championship bracket.

ÒAs a result of this expansion, the game will be played later than in years past,Ó a GWC spokesman said.
