Well at least one Utah football team won this week. I do hope to hear from Stang since it has been awhile and I do miss his comments. But on a side note SUU did beat Weber by 6 points. So to be correct at least 2 Utah teams won this week.

Congrats to the Aggies for coming back and getting bowl eligible after losing CK!!! Now if only Utah could win 2 of their last 3 games!!! A third tier bowl game is much better then moral victories and close calls and sitting at home watching the other teams that you beat go bowling!!!

Go BYU!!!
Go USU!!!

Utah State's high level of play is a great thing, happy they won, and are continuing to play great.

"Congrats to the Aggies for coming back and getting bowl eligible after losing CK!!! Now if only Utah could win 2 of their last 3 games!!! A third tier bowl game is much better then moral victories and close calls and sitting at home watching the other teams that you beat go bowling!!!"

Don't loose faith yet! There are three games left for the Utes and two of those are very winnable. I still hold out hope they can do it! I want Utah's big three schools to all go bowling. It's so much more fun than moral victories and sitting at home as you said.

Go Cougars! Go Utes! Go Aggies!

We were super fortunate to win this game. I underestimated UNLV, and Jojo Natson saved our bacon.

On the bright side, our under-performing lines will have two weeks to stew over their poor performances and get fired up for CSU.

Go Aggies! Win out!

And USU also pounded SU last year with the best player SUU has ever had. I see no relevance in either statement to yesterday's game.

A few years ago is a few years ago. Teams change every year and throughout the year. Do you actually watch college football much? I'm not really sure what your point is. A few years ago, the Utes lost to UNLV in a shut out in Las Vegas. It was a few years ago. Who cares?

USU beat a really bad UNLV team. The QB for UNLV was horrible; overthrowing, missing receivers and not managing the clock. Utah State had a few good plays and DeMartino played well. It was like backyard football. It was entertaining because it was so sloppy, more like sandlot than college football.

@New to Utah

Did you watch the game? Many of Herring's throws were dead-on long bombs. He only played poorly in the final stretch. (lucky us)

We won because we made one more play than they did.

It was entertaining, if maybe just a bit more than I would have liked. The cardiac kids made a return! I thought they were gone after 2011.

Can someone from the Deseret News explain to me how the AGGIES win a game and Utah and byu lose and our article is on page 9 after jazz (and they lost too),prep volleyball championships, 2 pages about byu's loss, 2 pages about utah's loss, other college football teams...and then the AGGiES get one third of a page. Boy, that always bugs me!

Congrats to Utah State on a good win and bowl eligibility.

Keep it going and hopefully SDSU can beat Boise, USU will win out and then play Fresno in the MWC championship game.

I don't live in Utah but I suspect it has something to do with readership members perhaps? If the majority of subscribers to the Deseret News are Jazz, Utes and Cougar fans, that may be a reason. Then again, maybe DN is bias against the Aggies? I could be wrong, dead wrong!

thebigsamoan,

I'm sure you're right, but it still bugs me.

Bigsamoan is correct. DesNews readership base, in order, is:

-BYU (by far the biggest part of readership)
-Utah
-Utah Jazz
-Everybody else (USU, Weber, SUU, high school, etc.)

It is what it is, but our coverage has improved over the last couple of years, so I'm happy for that.

@AggieForever

Agreed. It's almost like the Deseret News forgot that Big Blue played a game until they were perusing their espn app and realized they better throw something in the paper about the Aggies.
A little more coverage would be nice.

Talking Aggies how about that big basketball win over Southern Cal!

Downunder! No doubt a good win and good weekend to be an Aggie. Even though there is never any coverage. I have seen more coverage about a GEUY DUCK (something like that) then anything about USU beating USC! Even if USC is going to have a down year they are still stacked with top athletes!

Oh well! We get more coverage when we beat their favorite. IE BYU, Utah.

Stinks, but just look at the comment numbers on each article. I mean Chris B helps out by posting 5x per Utah article (at least in the beginning of the year, lulz) but other than that there's only about 20 Aggie fans who comment on here.

They shine the light where the advertising dollars lead.

The coverage is less than ideal, but better than the Tribune. Not alot of options for good Aggie news.

Well when USU goes to the Las Vegas or Poinsettia bowl then maybe the news will give USU attention. It will help if Ute's dont go to a bowl game and BYU goes to the same one they been going to for some years.
