A Wade Meacham holding penalty had the Aggies playing behind the sticks to start the drive but Hillstead wasn’t fazed. On second-and-18, Hillstead found Jalen Royals with a 25-yard pass to get his team in the red zone. He found Vaughn for the second time in the game three plays later as Utah State seized all the momentum.
Hillstead is 20-of-33 for 243 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in his first career start. Utah State’s offense has struggled in the ground game but Vaughn has eight catches for 61 yard. Colby Bowman leads the Aggies with 78 yards and a touchdown on two catches.
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 Briggs and backup running back Davon Booth to be ready 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.
