CFB: Turbin, Utah State defeats San Jose State 21-9
LOGAN, Utah — Robert Turbin ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns to lead Utah State past San Jose State 24-9 today.
Turbin became the first running back to top 1,000 yards for a season since 2001 for the Aggies (3-7, 2-4 Western Athletic Conference). On a cold and snowy day, Utah State gained 381 yards on the ground and had only 50 yards passing.
Lamon Muldrow ran for 54 yards to lead the Spartans (1-8, 0-5) and scored on a 2-yard run with 9:07 left in the third quarter for their only touchdown.
Derrvin Speight rushed for 70 yards and a touchdown on seven carries for the Aggies, and quarterback Diondre Borel scampered for 92 yards.
Utah State scored on its first possession, thanks in part to a fake field goal which resulted in a 25-yard run by Xavier Bowman to the Spartans' 6-yard line. Turbin then scored his first touchdown one play later.
Hawai‘i beat Utah State, 49-36, last Saturday and plays at San Jose State next Saturday.
