ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Utah State football team got a break just when they needed it.

After suffering a handful of season ending injuries, most notably quarterback Chuckie Keeton, the Aggies went on the road to New Mexico and broke a two-game losing skid.

Joey DeMartino, who has become the primary running back after Joe Hill was lost for the season, had three rushing touchdowns and a touchdown reception, leading Utah State to a 45-10 win over the Lobos.

DeMartino finished with 144 yards on just 12 carries and had three receptions for 41 yards. Bruce Natson added a 65-yard punt return for a touchdown just before halftime.

Freshman Quarterback Darrell Garretson was 15/23 for 144 yards and protected the football, avoiding any turnovers.

New Mexico turned the ball over once, on a fumbled handoff, which Utah State turned into their first touchdown.

The Aggies have a bye next before returning home to play Hawaii on Nov. 2.
