Utah State finished its turnaround season with an emphatic win on a national stage in the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl Saturday night, beating the Pac-12’s Oregon State 24-13 to secure one of the biggest wins in program history.
USU finished the season with an 11-3 overall record and a Mountain West Conference championship. Oregon State fell to 7-6 overall.
The win was USU’s first bowl game victory over a Power Five opponent and just the third time the Aggies have won 11 games in a season. It came after a tumultuous 2020 year where USU won just one game, had a coaching change and player protests that resulted in forfeiting the final game of the year.
