SALT LAKE CITY – Utah State wide receiver Deven Thompkins made an impressive touchdown grab in the second quarter to keep the Aggies close.

The Aggies were on the road to face the New Mexico State Aggies in Las Cruces on Saturday afternoon.

Logan Bonner threw a nice pass down the field, allowing Deven Thompkins to make a nice catch for a touchdown. That cut the NMSU lead to 10-7 with 10:06 left in the second quarter.
