LOGAN, Utah – A big hit from Devin Dye gave Utah State new life after an early turnover gave San Jose State the ball deep in USU territory.

Utah State (3-4, 1-2)  is in San Jose facing the Spartans (2-5, 1-2) in a Mountain West matchup on Saturday, October 21.

After giving up an opening-drive touchdown to SJSU, Micah Davis put the Aggies behind the eight-ball when he fumbled away the ensuing kickoff.

With the Spartans deep in the USU red zone, Devin Dye hit Chevan Cordeiro to force a fumble that was recovered by junior defensive end Blaine Spires.

The Aggie drive would end with a McCae Hillstead interception near mid-field.
