SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Stefan Cantwell passed for one touchdown and ran for another and Weber State held off Sacramento State 31-24 on Saturday night.
Drew Batchelor had two touchdown receptions, including one from wide receiver Andrew Vollert on a trick play to open the scoring, for the Wildcats (2-1), who played their Big Sky rival in a nonconference game.
After Batchelor's first score, the Wildcats made it 16-0 as Jonah Williams blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone. Going for two points after each touchdown, Vollert threw the third two-point conversion after Cantwell hit Batchelor for a 12-yard score.
Sacramento State opened the third quarter with an 11-play, 80-yard drive capped by Andre Lindsey's 3-yard run but Cantwell's rushing touchdown got that back. The Hornets kicked a field goal with 10:17 to play but didn't threaten on their final two possessions.
Weber State finished with 279 yards of total offense and Sacramento State had 220. Safety Mister Harriel had 16 tackles, four for losses, for the Hornets.
