Utah State Scores Late To Slip Past San Jose State

SAN JOSE (AP) ― Derrvin Speight rushed for a career-high 125 yards and scored three touchdowns, the last on a 15-yard run with 34 seconds left to lift Utah State to a 38-34 win over San Jose State.

Quarterback Diondre Borel passed for 259 yards and a touchdown, but it was the Aggies’ running game that made all the difference. Utah State ran the ball 63 times for 261 yards and overcame three turnovers to snap an eight-game losing streak in San Jose.

It’s the first time the Aggies (4-6, 2-4 Western Athletic Conference) have won back-to-back games since the final two games of the 2007 season.

Jordan La Secla threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns for the Spartans (1-9, 0-5) but was intercepted in the end zone with 15 seconds remaining.
