Utah State: How the Aggies' opponents fared Next » 27 of 39 « Prev


The Aggies may have failed against the Utes in Salt Lake City in Week 1, but by no means is this a reason to think that their season is totally off track.

Judging by the amount of wins from their 2013 opponents, the Aggies without a doubt should still be considered favored. Some of the losses were very close, such as Wyoming's near-miss against now-ranked Nebraska. Others were quite ugly.

We'll let you be the judge as to which one was the worst.

Here's a closer look at Utah State's opponents' week one results.

BYU and Utah are going to have a tough time with tough schedules becoming bowl eligible. I knew this would be a rebuilding year for the offense, but I thought the offense would be further along than they are. I thought the defense could carry them to an 8-4 record, but after seeing the offense on Saturday I'd have to predict 6-6 at this point.

Utah should win Weber State, Oregon State (not nearly as good as last year), Washington State and Colorado. BYU, Arizona and Arizona St are 50 / 50 games. I'm raising my prediction from 4-8 to 6-6 since U beat USU (which I thought was a 50 / 50 game, and Oregon St looks poor. The SOS will not be in the top 20, as predicted in the preseason, but is still tough with four guaranteed loses.

USU has the easiest schedule and I'll keep my prediction at 8-4.

BYU, U and USU all look pretty comparable to me. USU has the best offense, BYU has the best defense, U has the best special teams (the kicker was amazing).

As a Utah fan I was excited to see that the Ute's had the one ingredient that was lacking last year. Heart. It's that gritty toughness that for me has been the hallmark of Coach Whits teams. Based on what I saw last week, Utah could have an 8 win season. I definitely see a 4-0 start heading into conference play.

BYU will be 1-4 after their first five games. Sorry Zoobs, it's gonna be a long season. With the poor line play, Hill isn't going to make it into the second half during Texas.

The Aggies will win 9 and might get lucky against Boise State for 10.
