GREELEY, Colo. -- Cameron Higgins threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns and Bo Bolen ran for a career high 207 yards and another score Saturday as Weber State fought off a second-half rally to edge Northern Colorado 28-20.

After the Bears (2-6, 1-5 Big Sky) scored 13 unanswered points to pull within 21-20 with 6:28 to go, Higgins found Joe Collins with an 8-yard TD pass with 3:01 left and the Wildcats (5-3, 5-1) held on from there.

Bryan Waggener threw for 278 yards and a touchdown for Northern Colorado.

Bolen, a redshirt freshman making his first career start, finished with 295 all-purpose yards.

Higgins also connected with Collins on a 6-yard TD strike with 20 seconds left in the second quarter to give Weber State a 21-7 advantage. The Wildcats took an early 14-0 lead on touchdowns by Bolen (1-yard run) and Tyrell Francisco (5-yard pass).
