Utah state is the second best program in the state. Unlike byu, they were just
a couple field goals away last year from a prestigious BCS bowl.I
think byu and usu will continue to have a good rivalry for the recruiting
leftovers and for the right to claim second best team in the state.Go Aggies!
Utah State wins this game for two reasons. 1) Quarterback play Keeton is better
than Hill no question. 2) Offensive line play Utah States o line is much better
than BYU's.BYU's defense will spend way too much time on
the field because they will do what Utah did and stop the run and force the
pass. BYU will win against teams with bad defenses but will lose to teams with
good quarterbacks and good defenses.It will be close because of
BYU's defense, but BYU will again struggle to score. It could get ugly if
BYU has a ad defensive game as they have at least one every year.
Article quote: "Limiting Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton is the
obvious focus of the BYU defense leading up to Friday's matchup between the
two teams. .... The junior quarterback has riddled opposing defenses this
season with 71 percent passing and 17 touchdowns as opposed to just a single
interception. He's also rushed the ball for 224 yards and another two
touchdowns through five games."Now THAT is a smokin' hot
QB. It'll be tough to shut him down. A true test of BYU's
defense.BYU by 6.Go Cougars!
They'll do it. There is no doubt BYU will do it. So far all teams that
aren't in the WAC 2.0 have done it.
