Utah State wouldn’t be bowl eligible if not for Calvin Tyler Jr.
The senior running back scored the game-winning touchdown Saturday night in the Aggies’ 35-31 victory over San Jose State.
“Calvin got it in the end zone when we had to tonight,” Utah State head coach Blake Anderson said. “That last touchdown was huge.”
The victory gave USU six wins this season — the Aggies are 6-5 overall with one game remaining at Boise State — a remarkable feat given the team started the year 1-4 overall, with a blowout loss at home to Weber State on its resume.
Tyler Jr. did more than score one important touchdown, though. Against San Jose State alone, he rushed for a game-high 125 yards and three scores.
