The Aggies started conference play with a big 61-10 on the road at San Jose State. it put USU at 1-0 in conference play and was the team’s first road win in 12 tries.

As usual, many Utah State took to Twitter to give their thoughts.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Under the radar, of course, but Utah State about to play San Jose in a huge game for coach Matt Wells’ program.

It didn’t start well for the senior QB, his first possession ended with an interception.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Holy crap!<br /><br />Bench Myers. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/USUvsSJSU?src=hash”>#USUvsSJSU</a>

It didn’t take long for the Aggies to get the ball back. Aggie defensive end Jacoby Wildman recovered an SJSU fumble, which led to USU’s first points: a 29-yard touchdown run by LaJuan Hunt.

Myers led a 10-play, 79-yard drive that resulted in a 19-yard touchdown pass to Braelon Roberts. It put USU up 14-0 with 2:15 left in the first quarter.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>So far, USU has emphasized north &amp; south running, involved Dax Raymond and been creative with play calls.<br /><br />This is how you want USU to look.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Touchdown Aggies on the 4th and 3 swing pass. Wow. Thought that was going to be stopped short. 21-0. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/GoAggies?src=hash”>#GoAggies</a>

The Aggies didn’t stop there. The defense got involved scoring points. Jalen Davis forced a fumble that was returned 38 yards to the house.

Utah State continued to pile on points through the third quarter, but a San Jose State pick-six against Love finally put the Spartans on the board. An Aggie fumble on the next drive set up an SJSU field goal.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>”NOBODY scores 60 straight points against us!” SJSU emphasized with a 53-yd boot. That’s ten straight SJSU points off b2b Aggie turnovers.

The 51-point win made some Aggie fans more confident about the upcoming game against BYU, but it didn’t do the same for others.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Hey guys let’s just remember that SJSU is a dumpster fire even bigger than us. Still fully expect USU to get TRASHED by BYU.

— Parker Robertson (@ParkerRob78) <a href=”https://twitter.com/ParkerRob78/status/911755456711819264″>September 24, 2017</a></blockquote>

Either way, it was nice for Aggie fans to get its first road win since 2015.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>I don’t care that it was San Jose. I’m going to enjoy this dominating road win. 1-0 in conference play.
