LOGAN, Utah – The wild finish in the Utah State/Colorado State had college football social media buzzing on Friday night.

Utah State held off a comeback attempt from the Rams with a 26-24 victory. The game ended in a way nobody could have drawn up.

Colorado State was on the move after picking up a first down that put them on the Aggies 23-yard line. The first down stopped the clock with 11 seconds remaining. Everyone watching the game expected the Rams to likely clock the football and set up a game-winning field goal attempt from 40 yards out.

Instead of clocking the ball on first down, Steve Addazio’s Colorado State squad frantically ran out its field goal unit team to rush a field goal. There was no need for that to happen. It was a fresh set of downs and the clock had stopped.

The Rams pushed forward with a rushed field goal attempt that hooked wide left. Ball game.

With the victory, Utah State improved to 5-2 overall on the season.
