LOGAN, Utah -- Kevin Goessling kicked a 58-yard field goal as time expired to lift Fresno State to a 30-28 win over conference rival Utah State Saturday.

Tom Brandstater completed 25-of-36 passes for 257 yards for the Bulldogs (5-2, 2-1 Western Athletic Conference) and completed an 18-yard pass to Rashad Evans in the final seconds to set up the winning kick. Goessling missed a 22-yard field goal attempt earlier in the game, while making another from 44 yards out.

Utah St. running back Marquis Butler scored on a run from less than a yard out with 38 seconds left in the game to tie it 27-27. Peter Caldwell, who holds a 44-44 career point after attempt record for the Aggies (1-7, 1-3), drilled the point-after kick to push the Aggies to their first lead since early in the first quarter.

Diondre Borel passed for 193 yards and one touchdown and ran for a team-high 74 yards for USU. Caldwell also kicked field goals from 35 and 20 yards out to help the Aggies.

USU came into the game having been outscored 75-7 in the first quarter this season, but scored with 8:57 left in the first quarter on a 3-yard run by Borel, the first possession of the game for the Aggies. The Aggie drive was extended after a fake field goal attempt that ended in a 7-yard run by Borel, who was holding on the attempt.

Fresno St. took its first lead of the game, 13-10, with 4:10 remaining in the first half, when Brandstater found Devon Wylie on a 7-yard pass play.

Fresno S. gained 411 total yards on the day and USU had 399.
