Yet another slow start saw Utah State fall behind 24-0 before they could find any traction. A furious rally saw the Aggie tie the score at 38, but true freshman McCae Hillstead’s third interception of the night sealed the 45-38 loss.
Hillstead completed 25-of-46 passes for 399 yards and four touchdowns, but a red zone interception late in the fourth quarter showed his inexperience. Terrell Vaughn led USU wideouts with 10 receptions for 124 yards and his fifth and sixth touchdowns of the year. Davon Booth finished with the first 100-yard game of his career, tallying 10 yards on 21 carries. He was the first player to break the century mark against JMU’s defense in eight games.
The Huskies will be looking to rebound after getting drubbed 41-7 by a ranked Duke Blue Devils team. UConn surrendered 41 consecutive points before finding the end zone to snap the shutout bid with 12 seconds left in the game.
Ta’Quan Roberson was sacked twice while completing 13-of-28 passes for 114 yards. Victor Rosa’s 68 rushing yards led all Huskies in scrimmage yards gained. Brett Buckman caught two passes for 31 yards. Tui Faumuina-Brown led UConn with seven tackles while Jelani Stafford’s 1.5 tackles for a loss led the team.
