    Only team in the state to make it to a bowl and win it! And what an awkward moment when BYU loses their bowl game to a Bishop aka Bishop Sankey the star Huskies running back. If BYU played in a decent conference or any conference like Utah did in the Pac 12 then they wouldn't even get a bowl. Cheerios belong in a bowl before BYU does. We beat a ranked team with our BACKUP QB. BYU lost to a non ranked team with their starter Taysom "Tebow".

    I absolutely love what the Aggies have been doing the past few years... and are still on a great roll.

    But now the concern comes as to how long they will be able to hold onto Matt Wells. He may very well end up getting a big-school offer like Anderson did at the end of last season, which will make it difficult to stay. There aren't may Stew Morrills in this world who are ultra-loyal to their progam. Almost all good USU coaches of the past have ended up using USU as a stepping stone to bigger programs. And all things considered, it's hard to blame them.

    I hope Matt Wells turns out to be an exception. But it would be difficult to turn down a millions of dollars a year coaching offer... as Anderson found out last year... not so long after reaffirming his allegiance to the Aggies and Logan.

    But for now, let's just enjoy a great Aggie football bowl win against a nationally ranked team... It was very exciting and entertaining to watch. Congratulations to everyone affiliated with the program.

    That he did! That with a back up quarterback for most of the season... Well done Aggies! Great season! Keep up the great work!

    USU completed a very memorable season by winning their division and for beating a ranked team in a bowl to finish things off. Great job Ags!
