Weaver, who finished with 11 rushing yards, scored on a five yard touchdown run to end the first quarter scoring.

In the second quarter, Jesse Arriaga caught a 37-yard touchdown pass from Weaver and Brad Mendoza added a 30-yard touchdown reception from Weaver for the Golden Bears' two second quarter touchdowns.
