Denby, Davis score consecutive TDs as Weber State wins 35-30

GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Darryl Denby and Josh Davis scored back-to-back second-half touchdowns and Weber State rallied past North Dakota 35-30 on Saturday.

Denby made five catches for 107 yards with two scores. He pulled in a 13-yard pass from Jake Constantine as Weber State regained the lead, 28-23 with 7:07 left in the third quarter. Davis, 107 yards rushing, then scored from the 3, pushing the lead to 35-23 early in the final quarter.

Constantine passed 27-of-41 for 318 yards with three touchdowns and ran for a fourth for the Wildcats (6-2, 4-1 Big Sky), who were ranked fourth in the FCS coaches' poll.

Brady Leach kicked a 29-yard field goal to give 22nd-ranked North Dakota a 23-21 lead to open the second half. Donnell Rodgers returned a blocked field goal 60 yards in the closing minutes as the Fighting Hawks closed to 35-30. North Dakota (5-3) is competing as an FCS independent, but its games count for Big Sky opponents.

North Dakota's first score was a 99-yard kickoff return by Evan Holm, who stepped out of a tackle at the 20 and ran the rest of the way in the clear.
