Associated Press

LOGAN, Utah -- Darell Garretson threw for three touchdowns and the Aggie defense held Wyoming scoreless for three quarters as Utah State ran by Wyoming 35-7 Saturday afternoon.

Garretson was 20-of-29 passing for 156 yards in the game, which gave USU the Mountain Division championship of the Mountain West Conference. Joey DeMartino ran for 112 yards and one touchdown for the Aggies (8-4, 7-1 Mountain West Conference), his sixth 100 yard-plus game this season.

Bruce Natson scored on a 64-yard punt return with the Aggies leading 7-0 midway through the second. Natson also caught a 6-yard Garretson pass with 6:05 to play in the third to bring the score to 28-0.

Wyoming (5-7, 3-5 MWC) scored early in the fourth quarter when Brett Smith found Dominic Rufran on a 60-yard pass. Smith had been held to 82 yards passing before the scoring play.

USU will now face Fresno State for the conference championship.
