CHENEY, Wash. (AP) -- Ian Pizarro passed for three touchdowns in the fourth quarter, two to Wiley King, helping Weber State rally past Big Sky Conference leader Eastern Washington 28-23 on Saturday.

Pizarro finished with 292 yards passing and four touchdowns as the Wildcats (4-4, 3-2 Big Sky) overcame a 16-7 fourth-quarter deficit against the Eagles (3-2, 4-3), ranked No. 6 in Division I-AA.

Trailing 23-14 with a little more than 10 minutes left, Pizarro and King connected from 45 yards out for a TD to close Weber State's gap to 23-21. Four minutes later, the Wildcats struck again, with Pizarro hitting a streaking King on a 69-yarder to give the Wildcats a 28-23 lead. King finished with four catches for 153 yards.

With less than four minutes left and Weber State facing third-and-16 from its own 42, the Eastern Washington defense committed a personal foul that kept the drive alive and allowed the Wildcats to run out the clock.

Eagles quarterback Erik Meyer, sacked five times and under constant pressure, completed 20 of 34 for 301 yards and a touchdown. His 15-yard TD pass to Raul Vijil put the Eagles up 13-0 late in the first half.

Vijil wound up with seven catches for 129 yards and Eric Kimble added six catches for 136 yards. Ryan Cole carried 26 times for 111 yards for the Eagles, who had won three straight.
