LOGAN -- Chuckie Keeton and the USU offense weren't the only overwhelming forces on Saturday night.
One effort has been a family affair.
In the Aggies' first homecoming matchup against Weber State, Keeton matched his own record for touchdown passes and moved into the top 23 or higher in four USU all-time categories. The Aggies tallied 587 total yards -- 561 through the first three quarters.
Inversely, Weber State suffered its second-worst loss ever -- the worst is a 75-0 defeat to Portland State -- in gaining a meager 138 total yards. The USU defense held the Wildcats without a first-quarter score, doing that to their opponent for the 18th time in the past 20 games.
The Aggies also held Weber State without a first down until three minutes remaining in the first half and allowed it to cross midfield just once.
Helping to inflict the punishment were linebacker brothers Zach and Nick Vigil, both from the Ogden area.
Zach notched four tackles. Nick had seven, including two for loss. For both, it marked yet another good outing.
The USU's second-leading tackler entering the game, Zach Vigil was the College Sports Madness Mountain West Conference defensive player of the week after Utah State's 52-20 win at Air Force last weekend. He was a second-team All-WAC selection last season.
Despite his accolades, Zach had plenty to say about Nick, a redshirt freshman born in Plain City and a 5-A MVP at Fremont High.
"I'm proud," said Zach, who was born in Clearfield and attended Clearfield High School. "I can't wait to watch him bloom into what he is going to become because he has a lot of talent. It makes you a lot of proud that the time you put in and talking football with him, it's paying off."
After garnering interest from Utah, BYU and Weber State, Nick opted in January 2012 to join his brother in Logan. Nick is proving to be an integral part of the USU defense this fall, his effort Saturday following a 6-tackle afternoon last week.
"I'm excited," Nick said. "Getting me right, keeping me on track not just in football but in school and life in general, Zach and I have been very close even since we've been little."
So is the family. Some 50 relatives have attended every home game since Zach started playing for USU in 2011. They have held tailgate parties at most of those, and the young men's parents are planning on attending all road games for a third straight season.
