MOBILE, Ala. -- Colton Cook kicked a 22-yard field goal as time expired to lift Southern Utah to a 22-21 come-back win over South Alabama Thursday night.
After scoring the first 10 points of the game the Thunderbirds were outscored 21-3 and found themselves down 21-13 early in the fourth quarter but the Thunderbirds rallied, pulling within 21-19 after Tommy Collet Jr. intercepted a pass at the 43 yard line to set up a drive that culminated when Aaron Cantu found Anthony Norris on a 2-yard pass with 6:13 to play. It was the first touchdown pass at SUU for Cantu and the first TD reception for Norris.
SUU's two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving the T-Birds short but still within striking distance.
The Thunderbird defense then held the Jaguars, forcing a punt that set SUU up on its own 35 yard line. The Thunderbirds ran the ball down the the 11, with Malik Brown providing a 13-yard gain along the way, setting Cook up for the winner.
