CEDAR CITY, Utah (KWWL) -

UNI stuck around, but never got over the hump as the Panthers dropped a road contest 24-21 at Southern Utah. The Thunderbirds knocked home a game-winning 30 yard field goal with less than two minutes remaining.

UNI's offense struggled for much of the game, especially on the ground where they were held to negative 14 yards.

After falling behind 14-0 in the second quarter, the UNI defense finally got the Panthers on the board. Seth Thomas recorded his first interception and touchdown late in the half to pull UNI (1-2) within seven going to the locker room. They would trail again 21-10 going to the fourth quarter, but a Trevor Allen touchdown reception followed by an Austin Errthum field goal brought the Panthers in to a 21-21 tie with just over five minutes remaining.

UNI had an opportunity late, choosing to attempt a 52 yard field goal in the final two minutes. Southern Utah (2-1) blocked Errthum's attempt, and returned the ball deep in to Panther territory setting up the winning field goal.
