Nevada scores TD with 5 seconds left to stun Utah State 38-37

RENO — Nevada quarterback Ty Gangi ran into the end zone with 5 seconds left in the game on fourth-and-goal to stun Utah State 38-37 Saturday.

The Aggies (3-8) led 37-31 in the fourth quarter and held the Wolf Pack (4-7) out of the end zone with two minutes left in the game, but couldn't do it a second time.

Nevada was led by running back James Butler (119 yards and a touchdown). Gangi struggled for most of the game, but was able to throw for one TD, a 1-yarder to Wyatt Demps.

Tonny Lindsey led the Aggies with 168 yards rushing, including what would have been the game-winning 68-yard scamper in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Kent Myers threw for just 127 yards, but ran for 90 more and had two rushing touchdowns in the first half to help the Aggies build a 17-10 halftime lead.
