Congratulations to Matt Wells, the players and the program. Way to come back after the Keeton injury.

Provo, UT

Congrats Aggies, and to Coach Wells. Thank you for representing the State of Utah.

Great win against a ranked team.

Congrats on a repeat, and here's looking forward to a threepeat!!!!!!

Wow what a fun game!

Congratulations Aggies! You have proven for the second year in a row that you are the best football team in the state. Such great defense and offense, how could that be? I thought such performances only came from 'power conferences'?

Ok Byu now it is you turn to represent - get 'er done!

Didn't we used to have another football team from our state? I forget...


Defense and a good run game won that game for the Ags. Great job by the O line which made up for their last game and Joey was a man.
I like the future for USU, they have a great base of talent and experience and a coach who has now proven he's for real. If they can continue to recruit the local's like they have this will be a fun program to watch for at least Coach Wells tenure.
Congrats Aggies. What a great season!

Aggies great win! BYU your turn!

Salt Lake City, UT

I have never been more proud of my Ags. They finished the season strong despite a truckload of adversity. This victory provides precious momentum going into next season, too, so that's a nice bonus.

It's also nice I don't have to hear anything from trolls way down south or on the hill. Double bonus.

Go Aggies!

It's a great day to be an Aggie! Looking forward to the Tennessee game only 244 days away!

So much respect for Matt Wells, the Aggie football team and all Aggie fans everywhere. Tremendous game, tremendous season! Way to lead the way! Here's hoping my Cougs can follow your example.

Great win Ags. You played to your strengths and got it done. Okay Cougs it is your turn. You go get it done. From what I saw Mr. Lynch is lucky Taysom didn't go to NIU. If he would have Lynch would be standing on the side line with a clip board. Ag's defense was absolutely dominant.

Salt Lake City, UT

Watched the second half. A nice win for USU. They really came full circle this season.

Congrats to the Aggies for a well played game. Your defense was excellent -- completely dominant in the second half. And just enough offense to seal the deal. Well done.


Great game AGGIES! What a game!
I'll be looking for us on the FRONT page of the sports section with a picture BIGGER than byu's bowl game picture. GO AGGIES!

Nice win. Utah State could have folded after Keeton went down but they held tight. This program is for real.


That makes my night - These young men have worked hard and been so close to a lot of wins. Tonight they are the pride of the State and deserve this night.

Way to go - Well done men.

Virginia Beach, Va

That is a team that got better as the season went on. Chucky getting hurt almost derailed the Aggies but they grew as a team.
Great job by Coach Wells and Coach Orlando. The Aggies are a serious team. Congrats on a fine season.

"Over the course of the season USU allowed only 13 points on 16 turnovers given up."

Absolutely astonishing stat!

The Aggies should be a pre-season Top 25 team.

Sadly, another good season by the Aggies and Wells may be lured away by a bigger salary -- 85 miles down the road.

One Husky team down one more to go tomorrow. Go BYU! Good luck to Utah in their bowl game tomorrow as...oh wait....

Utah State is clearly the second best team in the state behind BYU.

Go Big Blue!!!
Bountiful, UT

Epic second half Aggies!!! Their coach was far too cocky going into the half. Aggies out coached and out classed N. Illinois. Great season and looking forward to having Chucky back with a solid qb backup.
