The Utah State Aggies looked like they might pull off the first major upset of the college football season, but Auburn has apparently decided they still want a chance at defending their 2010 National Championship. Most recently, that was apparently when freshman Tre Mason returned Utah State's kick for 97 yards and a touchdown to make the score a bit more manageable 21-14 in favor of the upstart Aggies.
Utah State capitalized on a 16-play drive with a one-yard touchdown run from Robert Turbin to give Utah State a 21-7 lead, but the ensuing kickoff moved the momentum meter right back to the home team as soon as Mason caught the Jacob Haueter kick.
Mason didn't catch the kick clean, but as soon as he looked up, he saw a hole and turned on the jets as he raced the Utah State special teams unit all 97 yards on his way to the opposite end zone. Auburn's defense did its part on the following Utah State drive, too, holding them to a four-and-out while putting the Tigers' offense on the field for the first time in quite awhile.
