SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Weber State wide receiver Rashid Shaheed returned a kickoff to the end zone for the Wildcats’ first touchdown of the season.

The Wildcats played against the No. 24 Utah Utes at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Thursday, September 2.

Utah kicked off after making a 23-yard field goal on its first offensive possession.

Shaheed ran the ball back 99 yards for a Weber State touchdown with 8:26 remaining in the opening quarter,

The special team’s score gave the Wildcats a 7-3 lead over the Utes.

Shortly after Shaheed’s touchdown, the game was halted and went into a lightning delay due to nearby strikes.

The Weber State receiver entered the season with a career full of kickoff returns for touchdowns. Before his season-opening score, Shaheed had returned the ball 66 times for 1,920 yards and five touchdowns during his Wildcats career.

Weber State’s game against Utah is broadcast on the Pac-12 Network and 700 AM.
