LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State Aggies dropped to a record of 0-4 on the season after suffering a loss to the Fresno State Bulldogs following a promising start to the game.

That was where the USU touchdowns came to an end.

Fresno State went on to outscore Utah State 21-3 in the second quarter and 7-0 in the second half.

USU had 343 yards of total offense compared to 541 yards by Fresno State.

Each team turned the ball over twice.

Aggie quarterback Jason Shelley was 9/24 passing for 144 yards and had 12 carries for eight yards.

Jaylen Warren led the Utah State offense with nine rushes for 136 yards and one touchdown.

The Bulldogs improved to 3-1 on the season and the Aggies lost their fourth straight to start 2020.
