The University of Saskatchewan Huskies were 39-34 winners over the UBC Thunderbirds in Canada West football on Saturday afternoon in Vancouver.
Two fourth quarter touchdowns allowed the visiting Huskies to leave David Sidoo Field at Thunderbird Stadium with its second victory of the season.
Huskies receiver Kit Hillis caught 14 Drew Burko passes for 224-yards and three scores, one short of the single-game conference record for receptions and just shy of the top 10 single-game receiving yard totals.
Mitch Stevens hauled in a 15-yard major from Burko at the 4:43 mark of the fourth quarter to put the visiting Huskies up 36-31, a play that would end up as the winning score. Chase Bradshaw and Mitch Stevens also had touchdown for the "Dogs".
Taylor Souster, Billy Greene and Jordan Grieve found the end zone for the home side.
With the win the Huskies moved to 2-1 in the Canada West standings, while UBC fell to 0-3.
The Huskies host the Regina Rams on Friday night at 7:00 p.m., at Griffiths Stadium.
