LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Diondre Borel threw for 255 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score as Utah State overpowered Idaho State 38-17 Saturday night.

Borel, who was 21 of 26 for the Aggies (1-1), became the seventh USU quarterback to pass for 5,000 career yards. His 15-yard TD pass to Eric Moats put Utah State up 31-3 with 6:59 left in the third quarter.

Kerwynn Williams, Derrvin Speight and Joey DeMartino ran for touchdowns for the Aggies, who had 275 yards rushing to just 49 for Idaho State.

The Bengals (1-1) were led by backup quarterback Russell Hill, who threw for 162 yards and led ISU to two late touchdowns after replacing Kyle Morris midway through the third quarter. He hit Isaiah Burel on a 5-yard scoring pass with 2:57 remaining, then led another drive that culminated in a 1-yard run by Corey White with 1:30 left.

Morris was just 7 for 18 passing for 74 yards and an interception.
