OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Patrick Tyler was 20-of-30 passing for 281 yards and threw two of his three touchdown passes to Logan Parker to help Southern Utah beat Weber State 32-16 on Saturday night.

Parker finished with six catches for 118 yards, his 78-yard reception on the second play from scrimmage opened the scoring and Southern Utah (4-2, 2-1 Big Sky Conference) never trailed.

McCoy had a 19-yard scoring catch to make it 13-6, but Rashid Shaheed returned the ensuing kickoff 100 yards to tie. Chance Bearnson put the Thunderbirds up 20-13 at with 2:31 left in the half. Jalen Russell had a 35-yard interception return to set up a 35-yard field goal by Manny Berz and early in the third, after Weber State (4-2, 2-1) went three-and-out on its next drive, Terran Beasley’s 56-yard run set up Parker’s 7-yard touchdown.
