LOGAN, Utah – Utah State had a chance to take the lead but a sack and trick-play turnover turned a promising drive into a potentially game-changing disaster for the Aggies.

The Aggies are hosting Boise State at Maverik Stadium on Saturday, November 18.

An electric 18-yard run from Davon Booth got Utah State into the red zone but the Aggies got too cute, calling for a wide receiver pass from senior Terrell Vaughn. Vaughn rolled right and threw a pass that was easily intercepted by Broncos defender A’Marion McCoy to end the drive.

Boise State took control on the following drive when George Holani scored his second touchdown of the half, this time from 27 yards out. It was the Broncos third consecutive touchdown drive after punting on four first quarter possessions.

Boise State leads 21-10 midway through the second period.
