OGDEN, Utah — Junior Jeff Carlson threw three touchdown passes, including two to Jon Fuller, as Weber State defeated Southern Utah State 36-26 in nonconference college football Saturday night.
The Wildcats, 2-1, overcame three interceptions of Carlson's passes and a strong second-half surge by SUSC, which trailed 23-7 at halftime.
The Thunderbirds, 2-1, scored twice in the third quarter to pull to 23-19. Jim Andrus fumbled into the end zone and guard Ross Harris recovered for the score, then cornerback Dennis Wells ran back a 21-yard interception for a touchdown on the Wildcats' next series.
Weber State of the Big Sky Conference got the ball on SUSC's 19-yard line after a Thunderbird fumble and Sean Sanders scored on a 1-yard plunge four plays later.
