Travis Wilson threw for 302 yards and two touchdowns to help Utah edge Utah State 30-26 in the season-opener Thursday night.
Wilson, a sophomore who was unexpectedly pressed into the starting lineup because of injuries last year, played error-free while completing 17 of 28 passes and rushed for a key first down on Utah's final drive.
Anthony Denham set career highs with six receptions for 113 yards for the Utes.
Chuckie Keeton, who completed 31-of-40 passes for 314 yards, scored on a 15-yard run to give the Aggies a 23-14 lead early in the second half before the Utes roared back.
Andy Phillips kicked a 45-yard field goal and then Karl Williams, who lost a fumble earlier in the third quarter, recovered the ensuing onside kick. Williams finished the drive with a 2-yard touchdown rush and Utah led 24-23.

It’s time now to see how I faired in predicting the outcome of the game.
First, I said Utah’s offense would be better in last night’s game than the unit that took the field in Logan last year. I think that revelation came on the very first drive of the game as sophomore...
