New Mexico State at Utah State

Utah St. 27, New Mexico St. 22

  •  

LOGAN, Utah (AP) -Utah State scored 17 second-half points behind 114 rushing yards from running back Derrvin Speight and topped New Mexico State 27-22 Saturday.

Utah State (3-6, 1-4 Western Athletic Conference) took its first lead of the game with 9:07 to play in the game when quarterback Diondre Borel pitched to Eric Moats on an option run for a 12-yard score, giving USU a 24-20 edge. On its next possession, USU opted for a 24-yard field goal by Peter Caldwell rather then attempt a fourth-down play on the 2-yard line, to make the score 27-20.

New Mexico State (2-7, 1-4) tried to tie the game on a fourth-down play with 57 seconds to play, but USU's Quinton Byrd knocked down the pass attempt. NMSU's scoring in the second half came on a career-long 48-yard field goal by Tyler Stampler and a last-second safety as USU ran out the clock.
