Barron, Weber St. defense suffocate Utah St. 35-7
LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Bronson Barron threw a pair of touchdowns — both to Ty MacPherson — and FCS-level Weber State walloped FBS-member Utah State 35-7 on Saturday.
Barron threw for 202 yards and was intercepted three times. The Wildcats’ defense, however, made up for the turnovers securing four interceptions with three coming on Aggies’ quarterback Logan Bonner and one of backup Cooper Legas.
Desmond Wilson’s 33-yard pick-6 gave Weber State (2-0) a 28-7 lead with 2:43 left in the third quarter. The Wildcats took a 21-7 advantage on the prior drive when Barron threw a 9-yard touchdown to MacPherson completing an 18-play, 86-yard drive that lasted 9 1/2 minutes.
The Aggies only score and lead came after Terrell Vaughn’s 100-yard kickoff return following a Weber State field near the end of the first. Weber State took the lead for the remainder when Josh Davis scored on a 17-yard touchdown run.
