THE STAKES

For Utah ... A win would give the Utes their first 3-0 start since the perfect, BCS-busting season of 2004.

For Utah State ... The Aggies are seeking to snap a 10-game losing streak in the "Battle of the Brothers."

THE TRENDS

For Utah ... Utah has won 10 of the past 11 games that Brian Johnson has started at quarterback.

For Utah State ... Utah State has lost 11 of its last 12 outings at Romney Stadium. Not so sweet.

THE EDGE

Utah will win if ... The Utes play better than they did early in the UNLV game. The sluggish start, however, was quickly overcome against the Rebels.

Utah State will win if ... The Aggies can overcome a poor history against ranked opponents. They're just 1-45 all-time when facing teams in the polls.

For Utah: Starting nose tackle Lei Talamaivao suffered a season-ending leg injury against UNLV. Safety Robert Johnson (hamstring), left tackle Zane Beadles (knee) and quarterback Corbin Louks (shoulder) are probable after missing last week's game.

NEXT UP

Air Force, Sept. 20, 2 p.m., at the Air Force Academy. Utes would love to avenge last season's loss to the Falcons in Salt Lake City.

PLAYER TO WATCH

DIONDRE BOREL, QB: Borel is a double threat for USU. The sophomore leads the Aggies with 101 yards rushing and three touchdown passes.

KEY MATCHUP

Utah's offense vs. USU's defense: The Aggies gave up a whopping 688 yards in last week's 66-24 loss at Oregon. A quick fix may be tough since the Utes have plenty of experience at the skill positions.
