OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Wiley King caught six passes for 119 yards
and two touchdowns to lead Weber State to a 30-21 victory over
Idaho State on Saturday.
The win was Weber State's third in a row and the last home game
for 18 Wildcat seniors. Weber State (5-4, 4-2 Big Sky) has now
defeated rival Idaho State 10 straight times in Stewart Stadium.
King's biggest catch came with one second left in the first half
after he called time out. Ian Pizarro threw a 47-yard pass and King
went up among three Idaho State defenders to make the catch, giving
Weber State a 20-7 halftime lead.
The Bengals responded in the third quarter with a 15-yard
touchdown pass from Matt Hagler to Shedrack Okoeber. The Wildcats
answered back with a 28-yard touchdown pass from Pizarro to King to
go up 27-14.
In the fourth quarter, Idaho State (4-4, 2-3) cut the lead to
27-21 on a 63-yard pass from Hagler to Akilah Lacey. But Joe
Johnson sealed the win for the Wildcats with a 30-yard field goal
late in the game. Johnson was 3-for-3 in the game with previous
kicks of 34 and 25 yards.
Pizarro finished the game 18 of 33 for 323 yards and three
touchdowns. Zach Hall rushed 23 times for 95 yards. Terry Larsen
also caught five passes for 98 yards.
The game was delayed for a short time in the third quarter with
a power outage. Power was restored with 30 minutes.
