Utah State had been in control of the Auburn Tigers for most of their game Saturday, but when Auburn took a 28-24 lead, it looked like order was finally going to be restored to the world. Instead, Utah State has scored two unanswered touchdowns and now leads the Tigers by a score of 38-28 with 3:38 remaining in the fourth quarter. Those Tigers fans who lack faith have already headed for the exits.
During Utah State's most recent touchdown drive, it appeared that Auburn was going to hold them to a field goal attempt. The field goal was a fake, though, and D.J. Tialavea made a fantastic catch to set up a first and goal after converting a fourth and eight. The play was reviewed, but the replay confirmed that Tialavea got his hands under the ball and completed a catch to convert the first down.
Robert Turbin eventually converted the touchdown for the Aggies on a one yard run, pushing the score to 38-28. The Tigers will now have to score twice in less than four minutes to save face and avoid an embarrassing home loss against a team that struggles to put together winning seasons in the WAC.
