CEDAR CITY, Utah - Utah State's Preston Otte and Brett Black each won singles matches, but Southern Utah claimed four of the six singles matches en route to an 8 1/2 to 3 1/2 victory in a Ryder Cup style golf match between the two schools here on Sunday.

The Aggies entered the final day trailing 4 1/2 to 1 1/2 after three mtaches of alternate shot and three matches of four ball and had six points available in the singles matches, but could not muster more than the two victories.

Two of USU's singles match losses were by one up as Jake Blair fell to Eric Nilsson and Jared Humphries fell to Zach Johnson by that score.

Otte posted the second-largest victory margin on the day defeating Taylor Edwards 3 and 2. SUU's Jesse Wheeler posted the biggest win, defeating the Aggies' Brendon Ehlers 4 and 2.

The Aggies will complete the fall portion of their season when they travel to Northridge, Calif. for the Countrywide Home Loans Intercollegiate on Nov. 8 and 9.
