C.J. Tuckett rushed for 211 yards and five touchdowns to lead Weber State to a 48-33 victory over Portland State on Saturday. Tuckett, who's listed as the second-string running back, got off to an impressive start when he ran for a 53-yard score on a fourth-down play to give Weber State (5-6, 5-3 Big Sky) a 7-0 lead. He scored again just before halftime, on a 1-yard run, to put the Wildcats in front of Portland State (7-4, 5-3) 27-20. After a slow third quarter, the junior broke loose for three touchdowns in the final period. Tuckett's fourth and fifth touchdown runs broke open what had been a close game, which featured four ties and four lead changes. Portland State quarterback Connor Kavanaugh had a career-best 364 passing yards, completing 22 of 37 attempts for two touchdowns.
