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.
