Aggie fans react to USU victory over New Mexico

Some Utah State fans took to Twitter to give their reactions during Utah State’s 24-10 win over New Mexico.

Utah State got the ball first, but New Mexico intercepted it on the first play. Jordan Love’s pass bounced out of Jordan Nathan’s hands and up into the air for the easy pick.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-lang=”en”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>We’ve had so many of those types of interceptions this year.

New Mexico then fumbled the ball in Aggie territory on three-straight possessions – two of those were inside the USU 10 yard line – but USU was only able to capitalize with one score. LaJuan Hunt’s touchdown run put the Aggies up 7-0.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>VERY concerning that UNM has turned it over 3 times and the Aggies are up just 7-0. With the Lobos driving.

Then it was Utah State’s turn to fumble the ball. New Mexico capitalized on it, too, getting on the scoreboard with a field goal. Hunt struck back with a 65-yard touchdown, the longest of his career and his second score of the game.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Thank heavens for LaJuan Hunt because this offense has been terrible today.

The Aggie defense forced a stop to start the second half, then added points with a Dominik Eberle field goal. New Mexico then went on a 12-play, 45-yard drive and appeared to have a touchdown, but the endzone reception was called back due to offensive pass interference. The Lobo consolation field goal missed.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>New Mexico drove the ball for approximately 45 minutes and didn’t score.

Utah State’s defense came through big in the fourth. David Woodward scooped a live ball off the ground and returned it 70 yards to for another score, putting the Aggies on top 24-3 with less than nine minutes to go in the game.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-partner=”tweetdeck”><p lang=”en” xml:lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Wow. Not a classic. But we need wins. So there you go. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/usu?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#usu</a>

New Mexico finally got its first touchdown on a 34-yard quarterback run, but it came too late. The Lobos never got the ball back.
