Cal Poly football 11-16

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -

Sophomore quarterback Vernon Adams passed for 224 yards and a pair of touchdowns before leaving the game early in the third quarter as No. 3 Eastern Washington defeated Cal Poly 35-22 in a Big Sky Conference football game Saturday afternoon in Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

Anthony Vitto replaced the injured Adams and connected on eight of 12 passes for 127 yards and another Eagle touchdown as Eastern Washington, the 2010 Football Championship Subdivision national champion, improved to 9-2 with its seventh straight win. The Eagles clinched at least a share of their seventh Big Sky title with a 7-0 record.

In its homecoming game, Cal Poly fell to 5-6 overall and 4-3 in conference.

"It was a stinger, but he'll be fine," Eastern Washington head coach Beau Baldwin said to the Spokane Spokesman-Review of Adams' injury. "He might have been able to play, but we just thought we would do the smart thing moving forward. Honestly, we didn't change a lot of what we were doing with Anthony. He went in there slinging it and he was just fine."

Trailing 35-3, Cal Poly rallied for three touchdowns in the fourth quarter on runs by Brandon Howe and Chris Brown and a 25-yard scoring pass from Brown to Cole Stanford.

    Meet Axel Rose: Therapy Bunny Helps With Healing

    Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care is making special visits to some of the area's senior care/assisted living homes with their pet therapy bunny, Axel Rose. Axel is a certified pet therapy bunny who participates in VNHC's pet therapy programs for their patients, and they are taking him around to make these special visits to patients before the Easter holiday to spread some love and cheer.

    A visit from a pet often leads to both physical and mental health benefits. VNHC nurses notice lower blood pressure, improved cardiovascular health, lower overall physical pain, and that the act of petting produces an automatic relaxation response, sometimes reducing the amount of medication necessary.
