Northern Colorado Bears quarterback Seth Lobato threw for four touchdown passes and ran for another one in a 42-34 victory over the Weber State Wildcats on Saturday. Lobato was 24-of-38 passing for 418 yards. His first touchdown throw was his longest, a 65-yard strike to Dominic Gunn at the close of the first quarter. Darin McDonald caught two touchdown passes of 35 and 15 yards. Running back Tromaine Davis caught the other one.
Gunn had a team high 160 receiving yards on six catches, while McDonald hauled in seven balls for 109 yards. Davis finished the game with 114 rushing yards and a touchdown on 23 attempts. He caught four balls for 30 yards.
The Bears twice failed to make a two-point conversion in the second quarter, but a Marcel Gibbons safety in the first quarter wound up lessening the blow of those missed opportunities.
Weber State quarterback Mike Hoke also threw four touchdown passes; however, he completed just 24 of 46 passes for 310 yards and an interception. Running back C.J. Tuckett rushed for 87 yards.
The Bears (4-6) close out the regular season on Nov. 15 when they host North Dakota. The Wildcats (1-9) are on the road against Idaho State to finish the season.
