San Jose • Think the Utah State run game outperformed expectations?

The Aggies put up 253 yards on the ground, the team's second-best performance of the year in that category. Senior running back Joey DeMartino led the charge with 120 yards by his lonesome in the 40-12 rout of San Jose State.

And that was way ahead of the bottom line Utah State hoped for.

"Their D-line was big and stout, and it was going to be a challenge," DeMartino said. "Coach challenged us the whole week saying we need to get over 100 yards rushing in the game."

The Aggies had 152 more rushing yards than San Jose State alone. The Spartans couldn't stop the run game at all, and in this video, DeMartino explains some of the things that gave the Aggies the edge.
