Fresno State 31 vs Utah State 27

October 31, 2009 9:43:56 PM PDT
All the pre-game Halloween scare talk, turned out to be much more than a cliché Saturday at bulldog stadium. This one went down to the wire, but things looked good for the home team early.

First quarter, bulldogs first drive of the game Ryan Mathews doing what he does best. He turns the corner for the nine yard touchdown, 7-3 bulldogs.

After a Utah State score it's Ryan Colburn coming right into your living room. The 18 yard pitch and catch to Seyi Ajirotutu made it 14-10, 256 yards and a touchdown for Colburn on the game.

But the bulldog offense would stutter for the rest of the half. And the Aggie offense really didn't.

Quarterback Sdiondre Borel's one-yard sneak made it 24-17 Aggies late in the first half, and almost immediately afterwards, a Colburn interception just before the half allowed Utah State to tack on a field goal.

Bulldogs trailed 27-17 going into the half.

But in the second frame the bulldog defense hunkered down and the running game reared its potent head, first Lonyae Miller on the short two-yard touchdown run to make it a 27-24 game.

Then Mathews, for Heisman, I mean, from 10 yards out with 4:36 left on the clock, his second touchdown of the game would prove to be the difference maker.
