Utah State football team rushes onto the field prior to their game against Weber State on Saturday, September 10.

LOGAN, Utah – Ike Larsen wasn’t interested in waiting for the clock to hit zero’s instead using a 36-yard interception return for a touchdown to end any hopes Hawai’i had of a comeback.

Larsen now has two interceptions on the day after picking off a pass in the first half.

This is the second straight game with a defensive touchdown for Utah State.

USU leads 41-24 with less than four minutes remaining.

Utah State Aggies (4-5, 3-2) vs. Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors (2-8, 1-4)

USU’s roller coaster of a season is trending up as the Aggies have captured victory in three of their last four games. The Aggie offense has found a rhythm under quarterback Cooper Legas, who has started four of USU’s last five games. The only missed game was due to injury.

With Legas as the team’s starting signal-caller, the Aggies have scored at least 26 points in three of his four starts. In his other start, USU won with 17 points.

As the Aggies take a long flight to the Hawaiian Islands, the Rainbow Warriors will look to snap a three-game losing streak.

Hawai’i has not strung together consecutive wins this season and currently owns a 2-8 record. The Rainbow Warriors opened the year dropping three straight before a win at home against Duquesne.

Following the victory over the Dukes, Hawai’i dropped back-to-back games against New Mexico State and San Diego State. After falling in their Mountain West opener to SDSU, the Rainbow Warriors tasted victory with a win at home over the Nevada Wolf Pack. Since the win, Hawai’i has fallen to Colorado State, Wyoming, and Fresno State.

Hawai’i ranks last in the Mountain West, allowing 35.8 points per contest. The Rainbow Warriors are also the conference’s third-worst offense with only 17.8 points scored per game.

Utah State’s offense averages 20.0 points per game and the Aggie defense surrenders 28.9 points per contest.
