LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Jordan Love passed for a score and ran for another, Gerold Bright and LaJuan Hunt each had scoring runs, and Utah State handed the University of Hawaii football team its fourth straight loss, 38-0 on Saturday.

Freshman quarterback Kent Myers also threw a TD pass for the Aggies (6-5, 4-3 Mountain West), whose defense forced a goal-line fumble and five punts and stopped the Rainbow Warriors four times on downs.

Bright scored on a 60-yard run on Utah State’s second possession and Love hit Ron’quavion Tarver on a 10-yard scoring pass on the third. Myers connected with Braelon Roberts on a 49-yard scoring strike for a 21-0 halftime lead.

Hunt scored on a 48-yard run in the third quarter and finished with 111 yards on 13 carries. Love, 9-of-14 passing for 113 yards and an interception, lost a shoe on his 15-yard TD run in the third, and Dominik Eberle added a 20-yard field goal.

Diocemy Saint Juste gained 122 yards on 28 carries to become just the second UH player to surpass 3,000 career rushing yards, joining Gary Allen.

Dru Brown was 16-of-29 for 128 yards passing for the Rainbow Warriors (3-8, 1-7), who have lost eight of their last nine games. Baldwin High School graduate Keelan Ewaliko had three receptions for 21 yards.

Hawaii closes the season Nov. 25 at home against BYU.
