CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) - Patrick Tyler threw for 200 yards and a touchdown and Manny Berz’s 26-yard field goal with 1:50 remaining helped Southern Utah hold off Northern Iowa 24-21 on Saturday night.

James Felia’s 20-yard touchdown run with 4:35 left in the third quarter put Southern Utah (2-1) up 21-10. But halfway through the fourth, Eli Dunne threw a 21-yard scoring pass to Trevor Allen then found Briley Moore for the 2-point conversion.

Austin Errthum’s 30-yard field goal tied it at 21 with 5:37 left to play. On the next drive, the Panthers stuffed Patrick Tyler for no gain on fourth-and-1 at Southern Utah’s 42.
