Game Day glance: Utah State at No. 23 Fresno State, Dec. 7, 8 p.m.

Published: Friday, Dec. 6 2013 7:23 p.m. MST

In defeating Wyoming, 35-7, last week, Utah State won the Mountain Division of the Mountain West Conference and travels to Fresno State for the first-ever MWC Championship Game Saturday.

Despite losing head coach Gary Andersen to Wisconsin and quarterback Chuckie Keeton to injury, the Aggies are one win away from their second consecutive conference. The Aggies won the Western Athletic Conference title last year.

However, they face a formidable opponent in Fresno State. The Bulldogs suffered their first loss of the season last week against San Jose State and will look to move pass that loss by picking up their first outright MWC title.

If Reynolds and/or Stewart can play it will really help the Ags. Both are key players.

I'm sorry, did you say this would be the Aggies first time winning back to back titles since joining FBS, right after you said this would be their first time winning back to back titles since 1996-97?! You do realize that USU has always played at the FBS/D1-A/D1 level don't you? USU has never in its history played football at anything other than in the highest division.
