Cowboys Take a Hit

(AP) - Chuckie Keeton threw five touchdown passes and Michael Smith ran for two more scores as Utah State cruised past Wyoming 63-19 on Saturday night. Robert Turbin also ran for 109 yards, his fourth-consecutive 100-plus-yard game for the Aggies (2-3). Turbin scored a TD on the ground and caught a 19-yard Keeton pass for a score, becoming the Aggies' fourth all-time leading career scorer.

     Wyoming (3-2) was led by Brett Smith, who threw for 265 yards on 28-of-46 attempts and an interception. Wyoming was held scoreless in the second half. Keeton converted seven of seven third-down conversion attempts and USU never punted before the freshman was replaced with 4:05 remaining in the third quarter. He completed 15 of 20 passes and ran for 44 yards.

     Utah State entered the game ranked 11th nationally in rushing, and ended the game with 318 yards on the ground and 548 total yards.
