LOGAN, Utah -- Matt Austin scored on a 21-yard pass from Adam Kennedy with less than a minute remaining as Utah State came from behind to top San Jose State 34-33 Saturday.

Utah State (4-5, 2-2 WAC) outscored San Jose 27-13 in the second half to grab their third consecutive win over the Spartans (3-7, 2-4).

USU scored two touchdowns late in the game on pass plays after turning the ball over three times early in the fourth quarter with two fumbles and an interception. USU blocked a 67-yard field goal attempt by San Jose with five seconds remaining to seal the comeback win.

San Jose was led by quarterback Matt Faulkner who threw for 340 yards on 27 of 49 attempts. Jens Alvernick added four field goals for San Jose, which is a school record.
