MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Robert Turbin rushed for 210 yards and three touchdowns, including the go-ahead score in the second overtime, to lead Utah State to a 49-42 victory against Idaho on Saturday.


After Turbin's 2-yard scoring run put them in front, the Aggies (5-5, 3-2 Western Athletic) secured the win when linebacker Bobby Wagner intercepted Idaho's Brandon Reader on fourth down.

Reader was 27 of 39 for 275 yards and a touchdown for the Vandals (2-9, 1-5).

Linebacker Korey Toomer, who carries the ball for Idaho in short-yardage situations, scored from 1 yard out to tie the score at 35-35 in regulation, then had a 2-yard TD run in the first overtime. Utah State answered in OT when Turbin scored on a 1-yard rush.

Adam Kennedy was 13 of 18 for 182 yards and an interception for the Aggies.

Kama Bailey had 23 carries for 110 yards for Idaho.
