In the victory over SUU, Turbin and junior running back Michael Smith combined to rush for 204 yards, becoming the first Aggie tandem to both run for over 100 yards in a game since 1989. Also, Turbin racked up 108 receiving yards to become the first USU running back to post a 100-yard receiving and 100-yard rushing performance in the same game since Emmett White in 2000. Turbin is the first Aggie to string together three consecutive 100-yard rushing outings since White did it in 2001.
It appears the BYU defense will have its hands full with Turbin and Borel.
"Those two players in combination are doing a nice job because those two are the ones who are touching the ball most of the time," Mendenhall said. "With the ball in both of those players' hands, I think it's a smart move by the coaching staff."
