LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Nevada will be playing for the WAC championship next weekend after beating Utah State 30-to-24 today.
Jeff Rowe threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third as the Wolfpack outlasted the Aggies.
B.J. Mitchell also ran for 134 years, his seventh 100-plus-yard game for Nevada.
Utah State trailed 14-to-three at halftime, but the Aggies were able to stay close thanks to two kickoff returns by Tony Pennyman. One was a 99-yard-return for a touchdown in the third quarter while another was an 84-yard-return that helped set up a touchdown. But Nevada was able to control of the fourth quarter by keeping the ball on the ground.
