Impact players to watch in Friday night's BYU-USU game

Published: Friday, Oct. 4 2013 12:49 p.m. MDT

LOGAN — BYU and Utah State have met on the football field more than 80 times since the very first game in October 1922. The latest installment in the battle for the Old Wagon Wheel trophy is scheduled in Logan tonight. This game could be a make-or-break game for each teams’ success for the remainder of this season.

Coaches often say things such as “football is a game of inches” or “the game will probably come down to one or two plays.” While most fans think those are just clichés, there is no doubt that some players have the capability to alter the outcome of the game based on their individual performances.

Here is a look at some of the players that could impact the game:

Cody Hoffman? Is he not going to be playing? It would seem like if Hoffman plays he could have a slightly larger impact in the game than an offensive lineman.........

Raleigh, NC

Unfortunately, it appears the u has to lose and go 0-2 in the pac to shut you know who up. But, isn't his silence wonderful.


I think Hill will be the game changer.
