LOGAN, Utah -- Chuckie Keeton threw four touchdown passes and ran for another as Utah State only needed the first half to prove they were the better team Saturday in a 38-7 victory over visiting Texas State.

Keeton's five-touchdown outburst came in the first half for Utah State (8-2, 4-0 WAC) which saw him complete 20 of 27 passes for 316 yards and four touchdowns while running 10 times for 48 yards and another score. His 4-yard touchdown pass to Matt Austin put the Aggies up 35-0 with 46 seconds left in the first half. Keeton's four touchdown passes went to four different receivers.

Austin had four catches for 124 yards, helping torch a Texas State (3-5, 1-2) defense not up to the task. Aggies running back Kerwy Williams had 19 carries for 120 yards but did not score.

Marcus Curry had nine carries for 46 yards and a touchdown for the Bobcats.
