Editor's note: Gary Andersen’s first WAC win, the Aggies fought off old habits and held strong against a very competitive foe. A short time later, Andersen collapsed from work-related stress and was forced to wear a neck brace for a while.

LOGAN — Utah State has had double-digit leads late in the game before — just last week, for example — and still managed to end up on the wrong side of the scoreboard when the clock hit zeroes.

So, with a 23-7 lead and 15 minutes of football left to be played Saturday against Louisiana Tech, USU coach Gary Andersen wasn't about to celebrate.

That mood didn't come until the Aggies had nearly squandered that lead following a flood of injuries to key defensive players.

The Potato Bowl win is obviously #1 and the WAC title clinching win over La Tech is obviously #2, but it's interesting that USU's win over BYU in 2010 is considered a BIGGER win than USU's win over Utah in 2012.


Thank you for an excellent article. You have done a superb job in showcasing the best of Gary Anderson. Sadly, those of us from the Logan area have been disappointed in Anderson's lack of loyalty to the program, school, athletes, students and fans. It wasn't long ago that he told everyone he was staying at USU, that he was happy here and had no intention of leaving? He signed a 5-year extended contract. And even as recent as just a few days before the Bowl game, he said he was staying. And then, out of the clear blue, he's gone. To me this is the real story.
