LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Utah State's 0-10 season is stinging the Aggies.

"This season has hurt worse than any other season, just because I feel that a lot of the other teams we've played, we are capable of beating," junior receiver Otis Nelson told reporters Monday.

"I don't blame any of it on coaches," he said. "It's all been players, players' fault -- not fielding the ball, not making the extra block.

"We watch film every Sunday, and if one extra person would do their job on a certain play, what would've been a five-yard play would have been a touchdown," Nelson said.

The Aggies have lost 16 consecutive games dating back to Oct. 14, 2006. Boise State, now No. 17, crushed them Saturday, 52-0.

"That was the most embarrassing game I've ever been through," Nelson said.

Coach Brent Guy said he was proud of three goal-line stands. Utah State plays New Mexico State this week.

"In these next two games, we may need that and have to call on that to win a football game," Guy said.
