Peter Caldwell also kicked three field goals for the Aggies (2-7, 2-3 Western Athletic Conference). The Warriors fell to 4-5 and 3-3 in the WAC.
Utah State led at halftime for the first time this season, 13-7, after a field goal attempt by Warrior kicker Dan Kelly was blocked.
Utate State scored on the next play when Borel connected with Nnamdi Gwacham for a 62-yard touchdown, the team's longest pass play of the season, giving the Aggies a 10-0 lead.
Late in the third quarter, Borel found Robert Turbin for a 23-yard touchdown pass to give Utah State a 20-7 lead.
