Editor’s note: A regional rival that hadn’t played USU in ages, this was Gary’s first FBS rout at the Aggie helm. Michael Smith and Robert Turbin ran all over the Cowboys. For Aggie fans, it was refreshing to finally be delivering blowouts rather than receiving them.

LOGAN — Weeks of frustration and heartache were exorcised out on the field in a cathartic 63-19 Utah State victory over Wyoming on Saturday night at Romney Stadium.

The victory was the Aggies' first win over Wyoming since 1978, breaking a streak of 10 consecutive losses to their border foes.

The theme of the week was "break the curse" on the Utah State campus after the Aggies had suffered heartbreaking, hard-luck losses to Auburn, BYU and Colorado State earlier this season.

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.
