Utah State supporters can be proud of the surprising play of the defense, mildly disappointed in their Heisman candidate and really disappointed in the special teams. Instead, they are probably just groaning in their deja vu moment. Would former Aggie coach Gary Andersen have outcoached Lane Kiffin, who is on the hot seat at USC and often gets criticized for his play-calling? Perhaps pondering the what-if of coaching takes back seat to the developing USU tradition of coming up just short on the big stages.

I think USU defense did pretty good against USC, since USC had great field advantage during the whole game. USU punter is at fault and the offense by not moving the ball. I know USC offense was not playing that good, but still to hold USC from scoring more than two touchdowns with their field advantage means the defense did pretty good, or USC offense is really bad. But USU has an overall defense ranking of 13th in the nation.
