The Spartans drove deep into Utah State territory on their first drive of the game but had to settle for a 25-yard field goal from Austin Lopez to take an early 3-0 lead.

The Aggies answered on their ensuing drive when Keeton hooked up with Chuck Jacobs for a 17-yard touchdown. Keeton added another touchdown pass later in the quarter, this time a five-yard strike to Austin, as Utah State went up, 14-3.
