  11/26/21 - Logan BonnerrSr/2022, Utah State, 6-1, 220 (DS#62 QB) + More +

  Logan Bonner threw five touchdown passes and Utah State rolled to a 35-10 win at New Mexico State on Friday, earning a berth in the Mountain West Conference title game. The Aggies (9-3, 6-2) needed a win and San Diego State's 27-16 win over Boise State to earn the Mountain Division crown and a date with the Aztecs on Dec. 4. Utah State's only other trip to the MWC title game was in 2013. Bonner was 16 of 23 for 306 yards and became the sixth Utah State quarterback to surpass 3,000 yards. The five touchdowns gave him 32 for the season, tying the school record set by Jordan Love in 2018. In its previous five road games Utah State had to overcome a double digit deficit but with Bonner and a dominant defense, no rally was needed to finish the regular season 6-0 on the road. The defense held the Lobos to 186 yards and forced six fumbles, recovering two.

Bonner connected with Derek Wright for a 27-yard touchdown in the first quarter and threw three scoring passes in the second, the last a 76-yard hookup with Wright. Wright finished with a career high 150 yards on four catches. Jordan Nathan and Brandon Bowling had 39- and 36-yard scoring plays in the second quarter and Justin McGriff a 10-yarder in the third. Star receiver Deven Thompkins was limited to five catches for 35 yards but that was enough to give him 1,543 yards, breaking the school record of 1,531 set by Kevin Curtis in 2001. Utah State went undefeated on the road in 1907, 1911 and 1923 but those wins in total added up to just seven. - Utah State/AP College Football

  10/22/21 - Connor ColesSr/2022, Utah State, 5-11, 195 (DS#34 K) + More +

  Connor Coles kicked a career-best four field goals, including a 34-yarder to give Utah State a two-score lead with five minutes left, and the Aggies held off Colorado State 26-24 on Friday night. Coles was a perfect four-for-four on the night with kicks of 45. 30. 42 and 34 yards, his last giving the Aggies (5-2, 3-1 Mountain West) a 26-17 lead. Colorado State's Todd Centeio, who passed for 282 yards, needed 81 seconds to tear 73 yards downfield and answer with a 13-yard pass to Gary Williams that shaved the Utah State lead to two points. Centeio and the Rams (3-4, 2-1) nearly pulled off a stunner, taking a final possession 61 yards in 44 seconds only to have a 42-yard field goal attempt sail wide.

Utah State started hot with Luke Bonner, 233 yards passing, hooking up with Derek Wright on a pair of touchdown strikes, including an over-the-shoulder catch for a 38-yard touchdown. Deven Thompkins made six catches for 104 yards - his seventh 100-yard game. Bonner endured eight sacks - a season high for the Colorado State defense - for a loss of 52 yards, had four passes broken up and was intercepted once. The swarming Rams also made 13 tackles for loss. Between the sacks and the tackles behind the line, Colorado State forced 113 yards in losses on Utah State. David Bailey ran for a pair of short touchdowns for Colorado State, and gained 159 yards on 30 carries. The yardage is his career-best with the Rams, though he has a 181-yard game while at Boston College. - Utah State/AP College Football

  Calvin Tyler Jr. raced 61 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with just under four minutes to play to lift Utah State to a 49-45 win over Air Force in the Mountain West Conference opener Saturday night. The Aggies, who had just one win a year ago, won their third straight game to open the season for the first time since 1978.

Andrew Peasley threw three second-half touchdown passes, including a 72-yard bomb to Deven Thompkins with 9:51 to go to pull the Aggies within a touchdown of the Falcons, 45-40.

Air Force took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, but Bonner engineered a 13-play, 71-yard drive capped by Tyler's first touchdown, then drove the Aggies 92 yards in 11 plays on their next series, giving them a 13-10 lead after hitting Brandon Bowling from six-yards out. Haaziq Daniels connected with Micah Davis on a 56-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to put Air Force back in front and Dane Kinamon scored just before intermission to put the Falcons in front, 24-13. - Utah State/AP College Football

  Logan Bonner passed for a career-best 390 yards with four touchdowns as Utah State clawed out of an early hole to rally past North Dakota 41-24 on Friday night. Bonner more than doubled his passing yards from the 143 in Utah State's last-minute upset at Washington State last week, and matched his career high with four touchdowns. The Aggies (2-0) trailed 21-7 after North Dakota's dizzying first-quarter saw three different passers throw for touchdowns on the first three possessions. But from there, Utah State outscored North Dakota 41-3.

North Dakota's Tommy Schuster was 29-of-43 passing for 348 yards with a touchdown. Otis Weah, who posted 114 yards and three touchdowns in the season opener, was held to 47 yards on 17 carries Friday with no scores. After a field goal to open the second half, the Fighting Hawks (1-1), ranked No. 6 in the FCS coaches poll, were forced to punt away their next four possessions while Utah State went on a scoring spree. Bonner had touchdown passes of 54, 4, 75 and 41 yards. One play after his lone interception on the night led to a North Dakota field goal, Bonner found Deven Thompkins on swing pass for a one-play, 75-yard touchdown sprint up the left sideline that put the Aggies up for the first time, 27-24, just 12 seconds later. - Utah State/AP College Football

  Logan Bonner threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Deven Thompkins with 11 seconds left to lift Utah State to a 26-23 victory over Washington State on Saturday night. Utah State (1-0) got the ball back on its own 22 with 3:02 left and Bonner drove them to the winning score in Blake Anderson's first game as the Aggies' coach. Bonner completed a pass to Derek Wright for a two-point conversion and the final score.

Max Borghi ran for 86 yards and a touchdown for Washington State (0-1) of the Pac-12, which finished 1-3 last year. "Food is going to taste better. Beds are gonna be softer," Anderson said after becoming the first Utah State coach in more than 40 years to win his opening game. "This is a memory I'll never forget." "I'm not surprised at all," Anderson said of the upset win. "We did not play our best football," he said. "All in all we made the plays we absolutely had to make." Anderson said the outcome did not settle the battle over who should be the team's starting quarterback. - Utah State/AP College Football

  07/26/21 - Savon ScarverrSr/2022, Utah State, 5-11, 180 (DS#69 WR) + More +

  As far as prestigious individual awards go, speedy kickoff returner Savon Scarver has won nearly every one of them during his record-setting career at Utah State. After all, Scarver was a consensus All-American as a sophomore for the Aggies in 2018, and the only way to accomplish that feat is to be recognized as a first-team All-American by three different official selectors (outlets). Additionally, the Las Vegas native garnered first-team all-Mountain West honors as a sophomore and junior, plus he received the Jet Award in '18, which is given annually to the nation's most outstanding return specialist.

The one major award that has eluded the former high school track & field state champion is Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Year. This is Scarver's final chance for that accolade, but he is the favorite according to members of the media that cover the conference. The senior was selected as the league's preseason Special Teams Player of the Year, it was announced Thursday as part of the Mountain West's annual football media days. The two-day event concluded Thursday at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. - Herald Journal Tribune
