Albuquerque, N.M. – Utah State quarterback Jordan Love capped off his fantastic sophomore season with a terrific performance in the New Mexico Bowl.

In the Aggies’ 52-13 win, Love was responsible for five total touchdowns, including four TD passes and one score on the ground.

Love Humbly Credits Teammates

Upon receiving his offensive player of the game honors, Love gave the credit to this teammates.

“It’s all about these playmakers right here,” said Love. “I mean we got them on offense and defense.”

Love Confident That Aggies Will Have Future Success

The bowl victory was especially sweet for the Aggies, who had undergone many changes over the last couple of weeks, not the least of which was the departure of head coach Matt Wells.

“It means a lot, especially to this team,” said Love on the importance of tying a school-record 11 wins. “I don’t have a doubt that we’ll be back next year.”

Love and the Aggies had blown out their opponents all week, but with the big changes in the coaching staff, there was some question as to whether they could keep it up against another high-octane offense in North Texas. Love, however, felt confident going into the game that Utah State would put up big numbers.

“I had no doubt,” said Love. “I mean we’ve done it all season, put up numbers like this.”

Aggies Set MWC Record

Thanks to Love’s performance and the efforts of this teammates, the 2018 Aggies can now say they’re the highest scoring team in Mountain West Conference history. Their 618 points scored on the season broke the previous record of 604, set by BYU in 2001.
