Following a UConn field goal and with the Huskies in total control, Hillstead helped his Aggie team gather some momentum when he dropped back and found a wide-open Bowman for the pair’s second touchdown connection in as many weeks.
Before the scoring strike, Hillstead was 3-of-7 for 12 yards and two interceptions in his second career start. Utah State has 22 yards rushing and 97 total yards at the half as they trail 17-7.
UConn possessed the ball for 24:20 in the first half.
