Freshman and fourth string quarterback Kent Myers had four touchdowns by the end of the game, bringing the end score 41-7 against the San Jose State Spartans. Utah State now holds a 9-3 record overall and 6-1 in the Mountain West.

Myers rushed for a career-high 92 yards on just four carries and scored three rushing touchdowns. He also threw one touchdown pass, finishing the game 14-of-21 in passing for 105 yards. Utah State finished the game with 421 total yards on offense.

Senior linebacker Zach Vigil led the Aggies defense racking up 19 tackles, 3 of those for loss, and 1.5 sacks. This was Vigil's seventh game this season that he recorded double-digits in tackles and 18th of his career. His younger brother, Nick, added 12 tackles to the defense.

Utah State still has a chance at clinching the Mountain Division title, but it would take a loss from Colorado State in either of their last two games of the season and an Aggie win against Boise State next weekend.
The Aggies will conclude their regular season next weekend in Boise against the Broncos on Saturday, November 29 at 8:15 p.m. (MT).
