A 78-point outburst, including a program-record 44 second quarter points, allowed the Aggies to coast against in the home opener against Idaho State, 78-28. With ten first half catches, senior Terrell Vaughn became the first Aggie since 2001 (Kevin Curtis) to record back-to-back double-digit reception games.
Despite Vaughn’s production, it was Utah State’s running back room that stole the show on Saturday night. USU finished with 380 rushing yards, the 19th-most in school history. Starter Robert Briggs finished with 101 yards and a touchdown on just nine carries. Behind him, Davon Booth (83 yds, 2 TDs) and Rahsul Faison (96 yds, TD) added 179 yards and three scores behind a dominant offensive line.
The Falcons grinded out a 13-3 road win against Sam Houston. A tie game after three quarters, Air Force scored 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to get the victory. The passing was an afterthought against the Bearkats, as Zac Larrier completed 1-of-3 pass attempts for 14 yards. On the ground, running back Owen Burk and Larrier combined for 151 yards on 37 carries. Owen scored the game’s only touchdown on five-yard plunge midway through the final quarter.
Defensively the Falcons finished with four sacks and six total tackles for a loss against Sam Houston.
