Colorado St. 35, Utah St. 34, OT
Chris Nwoke scored a touchdown in overtime and ran for another
with less than a minute in regulation to push Colorado State past
Utah State 35-34 on Saturday night.
USU (1-2) went for a two-point conversion after its second
touchdown in overtime, but Robert Turbin was stopped by the Rams
(3-1) on his running attempt.
Turbin had scored both of USU’s overtime TDs, including a
25-yard run. Crock Gilmore caught a 7-yard pass from Pete Thomas
for CSU’s second overtime touchdown.
After losing yardage on a sack and a personal foul penalty, CSU
punted with 2:17 to play. USU’s Eric Moats dropped the punt, his
second fumble of a punt in the game, giving the Rams the ball on
the 15-yard line. Nwoke then made a 7-yard run, followed by a
1-yard plunge to bring the score to 21-19.
