LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Jordan Love passed for a score and ran for another, Gerold Bright and LaJuan Hunt each had scoring runs, and Utah State beat Hawaii 38-0 on Saturday to become bowl eligible for the sixth time in seven years.
Freshman quarterback Kent Myers also threw a TD pass for the Aggies (6-5, 4-3 Mountain West), whose defense forced a goal-line fumble and five punts and stopped the Rainbow Warriors four times on downs.
Bright scored on a 60-yard run on Utah State’s second possession and Love hit Ron’quavion Tarver on a 10-yard scoring pass on the third. Myers connected with Braelon Roberts on a 49-yard scoring strike for a 21-0 halftime lead.
Hunt scored on a 48-yard run in the third quarter and finished with 111 yards on 13 carries. Love, 9-of-14 passing for 113 yards and an interception, lost a shoe on his 15-yard TD run in the third, and Dominik Eberle added a 20-yard field goal.
Diocemy Saint Juste gained 122 yards on 28 carries for his 3,000th career rushing yard for Hawaii (3-8, 1-7). Dru Brown, 16 of 29 for 128 yards passing, threw for his 5,000th career yard.
