LOGAN — Utah State held its third and final scrimmage of fall camp Saturday afternoon on Merlin Olsen Field inside Romney Stadium as part of Aggie Football Family Fun Day.
Coach Gary Andersen ran his team through 70 plays, which included special teams, red zone and two-minute situations.
“It’s great for our kids to be out in front of fans,” said Andersen. “I appreciate everyone who came. It was three quick practices back-to-back-to-back and they handled it well. We’ll give them a day off and be back on Monday. We’ve still got a week of camp and we’ll get ready to play.”
Utah State’s number one offense drove 61 yards in seven plays before settling for a 32-yard field goal from Josh Thompson. After that, however, USU’s defense did not allow another score until USU started inside the red zone.
“I thought on defense, the ones played well early. Even late they did a nice job of making some plays and getting some stops, and they were good in the red zone. The offense started slow again,” said Andersen.
In the red zone, Utah State scored back-to-back touchdowns as sophomore quarterback Chuckie Keeton hit senior running back Kerwynn Williams with a 25-yard pass on the first play of the drive. On the next series, senior quarterback Adam Kennedy connected with senior wide receiver Matt Austin from 10 yards out to cap a 3-play, 12-yard drive.
Utah State’s final touchdown of the scrimmage was during a two-minute drill as Kennedy connected with senior wide receiver Chuck Jacobs for a 24-yard touchdown to cap an 8-play, 80-yard drive.
Offensively, Keeton finished the day 10-of-21 passing for 118 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, while Kennedy was 10-of-18 passing for 71 yards with two touchdowns and one pick.
Defensively, Utah State had interceptions from senior safety McKade Brady, redshirt sophomore cornerback Rashard Stewart and redshirt freshman linebacker La’Bradford Harold. Senior defensive lineman Havea Lasike added a fourth turnover with a fumble recovery, while senior cornerback Will Davis, sophomore safety Frankie Sutera and freshman linebacker Nick Vigil each posted a sack.
