Utah State Scores TD As Time Expires In First Half On Shelley Heave To Thompkins
LOGAN, Utah – Just before the halftime break, Utah State scored a nice touchdown as Jason Shelley found Deven Thompkins for a 37-yard TD.
Shelley was flushed out of the pocket before going to his right and stepping up near the line of scrimmage when he threw the ball to the end zone. Thompkins caught the ball in the corner of the end zone and dragged his feet when making the catch.
It’s the first touchdown pass of the season for both Shelley and Thompkins. At the end of the first half, Shelley completed 13-of-20 passes for 88 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Thompkins hauled in 3 receptions for 40 yards and a score.
