The Spartans defense has struggled to contain the Aggies air attack, but the offense is trying to keep them in the game.
The Utah State Aggies offense is rolling and the San Jose Spartans are attempting to keep up as they trail at half 28-20.
The Aggies have scored on all four of their drives so far as the San Jose State defense is having trouble containing quarterback Chuckie Keeton who has thrown for three touchdowns in the half. Running back Kerwynn Williams has the other touchdown for the Aggies on a long 50-yard rush.
Utah State scored 28 straight points before David Fales connected with Kyle Nunn on a short 3-yard pass to make it 28-10. The Spartans defense made a rare stop on the Aggies following drive. San Jose State drove it all the way to the Utah State 8-yard line but once again fell short and had to settle for a 26-yard field goal to cut the lead to 28-13.
Fales led a drive as the half winded down to make it 17 unanswered points for the Spartans to bring it to 28-20. Fales is 21-for-24 with 277 yards and two touchdowns in the game.
