USU-BYU report card: Aggies struggle without Chuckie Keeton while BYU's Taysom Hill shines
Perhaps Adam Kennedy left too soon.
In 2011, the former Utah State quarterback relieved an injured Chuckie Keeton and led the Aggies to a bowl game. Keeton took back the starting job last season — but Friday night, he left USU’s game against BYU in the first quarter, remaining on crutches the rest of the way.
With backup Craig Harrison, the Aggies were unable to generate firepower, losing to the Cougars 31-14. BYU beat USU for the third straight season and 12th time in the past 14 contests. The Aggies’ nine-game home winning streak also came to an end. USU suffered its worst loss since a 50-14 decision to Boise State on Dec. 4, 2010.
