How Utah's 2012 football opponents fared: Week 8

Utah State (6-2, 2-0 WAC) Next » 2 of 11 « Prev
Last Week: Won at home 41-7 vs. New Mexico State

It took USU a single play to take the lead against NMSU. The navy Aggies scored so quickly, the ROTC hadn't even loaded the cannon that is fired after every score. USU became bowl-eligible in October for the first time in more than three decades. They also seem to have resolved some of their kicking issues. Nick Diaz went 2-3 on the day, hitting 52-yard and 48-yard field goals. It's very clear that Utah State is simply a level above nearly everyone else in the WAC. If this trend continues, the Nov. 17 matchup vs. Louisiana Tech will determine the final WAC football championship.
