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 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.

Wildcat safety Calvin Hampton scored on a 24-yard interception return late in the game before SUSC of the Division II Western Football League finished the scoring when Chad Richard threw an 11-yard scoring pass to Scott Mosher with 21 seconds left in the game..

Weber State scored three times in the final 3:26 of the first half to break a 7-7 tie. Carlson threw a 37-yard scoring pass to Fuller and Weber State recovered an on-side kick to set up another Carlson-to- Fuller scoring pass, this one 47 yards.
