Recap: TX-San Antonio vs. Utah State

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Chuckie Keeton threw for 340 yards and three touchdowns as the Utah State Aggies defeated the Roadrunners of Texas- San Antonio, 48-17, in Western Athletic Conference action at the Alamodome.

Keeton converted 27-of-36 passes, was sacked once and had a pass picked off as he guided the Aggies (7-2, 3-0 WAC) to a third straight victory. Kerwynn Williams added 90 yards and two scores on 13 rushing attempts as well.

The Roadrunners (5-3, 1-2) were paced by Ryan Polite who converted 21-of-36 passes for 248 yards and a score, but he was sacked two times and had a pair of attempts picked off as the team suffered a third straight loss after beginning the 2012 campaign with five consecutive victories.

Needing less than one minute to put points on the board early in the first quarter, the Aggies struck first when Keeton hooked up with Kellen Bartlett for a two-yard TD pass play.

Much later in the period the Roadrunners stalled on offense after moving the ball 68 yards on 10 plays, consuming more than five minutes off the clock, resulting in a 29-yard field goal by Kristian Stern.

From there, Utah State ripped off 34 straight points to put the game away, beginning with a 22-yard field goal by Nick Diaz just 16 seconds into the second period.

Williams added a one-yard TD run shortly thereafter, followed by a 29-yard TD pass from Keeton to Cameron Webb to make the score 24-3. Diaz added a 24-yard field goal before the end of the half to push the lead to 24 points at the break.

Again, needing less than a minute to get into the end zone to begin the second half, Williams finished off a 72-yard drive with a one-yard run across the goal line. Less than three minutes later it was Joe Hill who did the honors from a yard out for the Aggies, making the score 41-3.

UTSA showed some signs of life late in the meeting with a seven-yard touchdown run by Evans Okotcha and a 23-yard TD pass from Polite to Cole Hicks, but in between Keeton combined with Hill on a 16-yard scoring play to provide the visitors with a comfortable margin of victory.

Utah State, which entered the week ranked seventh in the nation in scoring defense with just 13.9 ppg allowed, forced a total of 10 punts and limited the Roadrunners to 51 yards on the ground and 299 yards of total offense.
