Utah State fan Jason Nelson is impressed with the play of the offense.
Jordan Love had 6 touchdowns today and 491 yards passing in 2 and half quarters of play. He’s sat the equivalent of 3 games this season and still has insane numbers. He uses his weapons so well. 9-1 #AggiesAllTheWay

Undefeated At Home
With the win over San Jose State, Utah State finished their regular season home schedule at 6-0. It is the fourth time in school history that the Aggies have accomplished this. The other three times were in 1907, 2012 and 2014.
The Aggies still have a chance to host the Mountain West Conference Championship if they finish with the best record in the conference.
The players celebrate in the locker room after accomplishing one of their season goals.

I’m glad I made it up to Logan for the last home game of the regular season. Hopefully the Aggies get one more game in Maverik Stadium this year. #LightTheABlue #AggiesAllTheWay #USU #MWChamps pic.twitter.com/HwwPwgJexV
