OGDEN, Utah -- Southern Utah scored 25 straight points to rally from an 11-point third-quarter deficit and defeat Weber State 35-28 in the in-state rivals' final meeting as non-conference foes.

Austin Minefee ran for two touchdowns, caught a TD pass and made a tackle in the end zone after an interception for a safety to lead the Thunderbirds (4-4), who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Southern Utah will leave the Great West Conference to join Weber State (3-4) in the Big Sky Conference next year.

Mike Hoke completed 27 of 40 passes for 288 yards with a touchdown and interception for the Wildcats.

Minefee rushed 24 times for 88 yards and added 86 yards receiving.

Brad Sorensen was 18 of 21 passing for 201 yards and a TD with an interception for the Thunderbirds.
