LOGAN — The Utah State Aggies' hopes are still alive for a WAC championship as they made easy work of the Texas State Bobcats.
The Aggies scored early and often against the Bobcats and again it came at the hands of quarterback Chuckie Keeton.
"First drive Chuckie and company punched TXST in the mouth. 7-0 12:36 left in 1st," tweeted @WACJack.
Then every knew is was going to be a long day for the Bobcats when Keeton connected with Austin just a few minutes later to set up another score.
"Yes, this could get ugly in Romney," tweeted @Tjonessltrib. U"SU with the ball again...still 9:22 remaining in the first half."
The Aggies just kept rolling and Keeton kept hitting receivers and moving the ball at will.
"And that's another Aggie.... TOUCHDOWN!" tweeted @USUFootball. "4-yard pass from Keeton to Austin. USU leads 35-0 with 46 seconds left in the half."
The Aggies went into half up 35-0 with al the momentum, but points didn't come as easy in the second half.
"Wow, first big mistake by Utah State, a pick deep in their territory off a screen," tweeted @jarommoore. "TX State starting on the 6."
Texas State scored off the turnover, but that's pretty much all they got on offense. The Aggie defense held the Bobcats to just 158 yards of total offense with just 82 of those coming on the ground.
The Aggies now have eight wins on the season, which makes it their most successful football season in, well, a really long time.
"Gary Andersen was 10 years old the last time USU had 8 wins" tweeted @DesNewsKraig.
To give you an idea, USU coach Gary Andersen is 47-years-old.
Next week will decide the WAC championship as the Aggies take on the 7-1 Louisiana Tech Bulldogs on the road.
