Aggies Rack Up Points In Spring Football Game
LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State Aggies held their annual Spring Football Game at Maverik Stadium with the Utah State team beating the Aggies team 38-14.
In limited action, quarterback Jordan Love threw two touchdown passes, hitting wide receivers Savon Scarver and Sam Lockett. Running back Gerold Bright had a one yard touchdown run and freshman Enoch Nawahine had a six-yard rushing touchdown.
“The offense put up a lot of points today, which is what we do, so today was a good day,” said Love. “We have a lot of playmakers on the field, so it is my job to try and get them the ball. The faster we can play the more it is going to wear on defenses.”
Quarterback Henry Colombi had two touchdown passes through the air.
“We competed and one team was obviously stacked with personnel to beat the other team and that was reflected on the scoreboard,” Utah State head coach Gary Andersen said. “We stayed healthy for the most part, they had a lot fun and competed like crazy, and there were a lot of plays made out there. The playmaking at the wide receiver position was good today. We saw some big plays, some yards after catch, and some fantastic catches in the end zone, and they were all contested balls, so that is good to see,” he added

“I thought the first offensive line protected the passer well and I thought the first defensive line got after the passer well, so those were good things to see. I’m really proud of the way these kids have competed over the first 13 practices,” Andersen added.
The defense got involved in the scoring as well with junior safety Braxton Gunther returning an interception 70-yards for a touchdown.
Utah State will hold two closed practices next week to close out spring camp.
