Utah State has a long history of playing well against BCS quality teams under current head coach Gary Andersen. In 2009, USU lost at Texas A&M, 38-30. In 2010, USU lost at then No. 7 Oklahoma, 31-24. And in 2011, USU lost at defending national champion and No. 19 Auburn, 42-38, after leading for the majority of the game. This could spell bad news for the Utes who are considered contenders for a BCS berth this year.
Sophomore quarterback Chuckie Keeton looked solid for the Aggies in the opener going 22-of-25 passing for 304 yards with two touchdowns. Although they were playing Southern Utah, the offense looked crisp as the Aggies had several long drives leading up to big points early in the game. The offense dominated the time of possession and had a stellar third down conversion rate nailing 8-of-12 in the contest.
Defensively, senior cornerback Terrence Alston, senior safety McKade Brady and junior linebacker Zach Vigil provide the Aggies with experienced leadership on the field.
Junior quarterback Jordan Wynn leads the Utes and should be able to move the ball in this contest. There is no doubting the talent of the Utes but recent trends this game will be close.
The Utes are 2-5 against the spread (ATS) in their last seven against the WAC and 2-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Aggies are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games, 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven Friday games and 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
This game will be very entertaining and hard fought as both teams give it their all to the bitter end. The play is on the home underdogs looking to make a statement on national television.
