Following Dye’s interception on third-and-long, Utah State’s offense was stopped once again, forcing a 35-yard field goal attempt. Rather than kick, Blake Anderson called for a fake with Nimrod taking the toss.
The junior kicker broke one tackle in the backfield before finding space down the sideline for the Aggies first touchdown. The score put a merciful end to JMU 24-point blitz to open the game.
Aggie Depth Report
- After not practicing all week, safety/linebacker Anthony Switzer was able to play against Air Force. “I feel like we were lucky to get him out of the game unscathed,” Anderson said on Monday. “He should be completely healthy.”
- Starting running back Robert Briggs did not play against Air Force, but Anderson expects him and backup running back Davon Booth to be ready to go against James Madison.
- “Most of it is bumps and bruises. Nobody that should be out unless we have some type of recurring injury or issue in practice this week,” Anderson stated.
