PORTLAND, Ore. -- DJ Adams ran for 152 yards and two touchdowns to push Portland State to a 45-24 win over Weber State on Saturday.
The Vikings (5-4, 2/3 Big Sky Conference) got help on the ground from Nate Tago, who also punched in two TD runs, while Thomas Carter hauled in a 36-yard touchdown pass from Colin Ramirez. The defense added a TD as well when safety David Edgerson recovered a fumble by Weber State quarterback Austin Chipoletti and ran it 28 yards into the end zone. Marcus Kinsella kicked a 47 yard field goal.
Chipoletti threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to Shaydon Kehano to close the gap for the Wildcats (1-8, 0-5) to close out the half trailing by just two touchdowns. He rushed for another TD in the third quarter from the 1-yard line, and connected on a 9-yard TD pass to Erik Walker.
