Looks like another fun road trip we will be attending!

Go Aggies!

Why didn't you guys do a home and home with Tennessee?

We scheduled a home and home with Michigan last year.

I will never understand why you guys and byu do 1 for 2's or simply 0 for 1's and not home and homes like we do?

because chrisbe... you guys are the big boys and are the top dogs and are the envy of the nation and lead your conference and... oh wait

Why don't you worry about winning your in state games or ANY games for that matter before you try to get lippy.

I know the money is good, but I would rather win games and conference championships and go bowling in a small conference, than lose games and be a doormat and sit "On'a-sofa" during bowl season.

but hey... you keep loving your pac-12 membership

RE: Chris B.

In the BCS era (1996-present) Utah has played non-conference games with 31 BCS opponents. Of those games 19 were road games and 12 were home games (a nearly 1 for 2 average). Against marquee teams Utah played the following number of home vs. road games.

Notre Dame 0-1
Michigan 0-2
Oregon 1-3
Texas A&M 0-1
Stanford 0-1

Utah did have home and home series with Pitt, Oregon State, UCLA, Louisville, AZ, North Carolina, Indiana, and Washington State: nearly all BCS conference bottom dwellers.
Congratulations on your imaginary superiority.

and with our 0-1 star talent, we will continue to equal or beat you in the NFL draft year in and year out

When has Utah ever played a home-and-home against an SEC team?

(Texas A&M doesn't count; those Aggies weren't in the SEC when Utah played them.)

USC--Utes couldn't beat them at home or away. What does it matter, except the utes have a much smaller stadium.

Home games against Texas, Boise State, Georgia Tech, with a mild scrimmage with the utes? I'll drink a mild shake to that.

"In the BCS era (1996-present)"

Nice try! The BCS era began in 1998 not 1996. You were trying to include BYU's 1996 Cotton Bowl season as part of the BCS era to make to Cougies look good. Epic Fail!

"Notre Dame 0-1
Michigan 0-2
Oregon 1-3
Texas A&M 0-1
Stanford 0-1"

Correction: Texas A&M was a home and home. In 2003 the Utes lost 28-26 in College Station and crushed A&M 42-21 in 2004 (Fiesta Bowl year). Oregon when it was scheduled was a home and home 2001 in Eugene and 2003 in Salt Lake City. The 2009 game was a one and done until Utah joined the Pac-12. Utah never played Stanford in the BCS era! But you are correct about Michigan and Notre Dame though!

This is exciting! It only makes sense that Chuckie will start his senior season against an SEC team considering that's how he started his career with the Aggies. I hope we can pull off a victory this go-around. If Chuckie was able to give Auburn a challenge as a true-freshman, then hopefully we can tear it up against Tennessee during his senior campaign. Also- this is very interesting considering the transfer cornerback that USU just acquired from the Volunteers (I think his name is Gray?) This is especially interesting because his first game as an eligible player (due to the NCAA 1 year sit-out rule for transfers) will be against his old team! Exciting news! Go Aggies!

Thanks for the corrections.

Ofa-Sofa - year in and year out? Really? USU was decent for the 2 years that they had Gary Anderson at the helm, but year in and year out? Please. The Aggies long legacy of stinking is well documented.

I feel very sorry for the Volunteers. Utah State is on the rise!!

I am pretty sure that the U would really appreciate it if you would stop speaking for them and maybe for once check your facts before saying something stupid. Last time I checked "your " football team isn't exactly setting the world on fire against anyone let alone the SEC.

Well well well it looks like my first comment on the official USU season will be 0-1. There is no way USU will beat an SEC school to start the season. And it's a shame considering USU is the best team/school in the country and should always be in the National title game. Such a shame.

Your confused Stang...it was the T-birds that were 0-1 last year after their first game.
Remember?

Stang08
Southern, UT

Yeah I remember. But in case you forgot we aren't talking about last season. We are talking about the 2013 season. Which means USU will be 0-1 to start the year. I know which season we are talking about, do you? You are the one who is confused.

Ironmomo

NO Stang read the article. The article is NOT about the 2013 season opener, the article is about the 2014 season and Tennessee being the opener for the Aggies in 2014.

I'll mirror your question back at you Stang as it is very appropriate. "I know which season we are talking about, do you?"

Stang08
Southern, UT

I'm in the mode for the 2013 season and missed it. But my comment still stands only now it's the first game of the 2014 season where my first comment will be USU 0-1. Who are they playing to start the 2013 season? Whomever it is I can garrentee it's gonna be the same result as the 2014 season starter.

Go Big Blue!!!

Just like stang predicted major losses for the Aggies every week last season? Odds are that he will be right a couple of times this season. Odds are that he will continue to wrong most of the time.

The only person I have ever heard mention USU and a national title has been stang. Talk about a closet Aggie fan.
