SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Cameron Higgins threw for 380 yards and four touchdowns to lead Weber State to a 32-27 victory over Sacramento State on Saturday.

Tim Toone caught six passes for 146 yards and one touchdown, and Trevyn Smith ran for 123 yards for the Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 Big Sky), who hadn't won in Sacramento since 1998. Higgins also scored on a 4-yard run.

Tony Washington caught three passes for 81 yards and one touchdown and Evander Wilkins ran for 93 yards for the Hornets (2-2, 0-1), who have lost five straight Big Sky openers.

Trailing 20-10 in the third quarter, Sacramento State tied the game on a 25-yard field goal and a 2-yard touchdown run by freshman running back Jake Croxdale. The tying score was set up when the Wildcats' Bryant Eteuati fumbled a kickoff on the Hornets' 25-yard line.

Weber State regained the lead on the next possession when Toone caught a 20-yard pass from Higgins and ran 40 yards for the TD. Weber State missed the point-after attempt to leave the score 26-20 after three quarters.

Weber State extended its lead 32-20 when Eteuati caught a 31-yard TD pass with 5:31 left in the fourth quarter.

After Sacramento State reserve quarterback Duncan White tossed a 16-yard TD pass to Dylan Lane to make the score 32-27, the Wildcats' defense stopped Wilkins from converting on fourth and one at the Hornets' 49-yard line.
