DAVIS, Calif. (AP) -- Adam Perry passed for 362 yards and two touchdowns, and Western Washington spoiled the opening of UC Davis' new stadium with a 28-21 victory on Saturday.
Perry went 31-of-46 for the Division II Vikings (1-0), who had lost their last seven games against UC Davis before the Aggies moved into the Football Championship Subdivision this season. Casey Dell caught nine passes for 96 yards, and Rick Copsey had 93 yards receiving and a score.
Freshman Joe Trombetta rushed for 189 yards and a touchdown for the Aggies (0-1). UC Davis played its first game in the new Aggie Stadium, a $31 million facility that seats more than 10,000 spectators. UC Davis' classes don't start until Sept. 27, yet 9,690 people attended the game.
The Aggies led 14-7 when quarterback Tim Plough hit receiver Chris Carter for a 33-yard TD with 4:31 left in the first half, but Perry threw an 85-yard TD pass to Rick Copsey, and Josh Lider kicked a 22-yard field goal with no time left to give the Vikings a 16-14 halftime lead.
Western Washington led 22-21 on Zach Hekker's 22-yard TD catch late in the third, and Josh Lider kicked two field goals in the fourth quarter.
UC Davis drove to the Vikings 5 in the closing minutes, but safety Danny Cumming deflected a fourth-down pass intended for Brandon Rice with 2:53 left.
Plough passed for 201 yards and two touchdowns for the Aggies.
