    Way to go Aggies!

    This is the most wins in Utah State history but I'm not sure this is the best team in Utah State history with no disrespect to this team. The 1961 team finished 9-1-1 and ranked 10th in the AP Football team. The most famous player on this team was the late Merlin Olsen but AFL Hall of Famer Jim Turner was also on the squad. The team also had a great head coach as the Aggies were coached by John Ralston who later coached the Denver Broncos. I think this team deserves some props as well.

    This season was wonderful but the Aggies still have big goals ahead I'm sure. Winning on the road against a big-name opponent is the next step as a win in the bowl game is checked off the list. Coach Andersen has it going on for sure, I say this is just the beginning rather than the end of a long journey.

    Congrats Aggies! You had a great season and surely are the best team in the state this year, although I am glad my Cougars managed to pull off the win over your great team this year. Hope you win the MWC next year, I think it is very possible.

    Great win Aggies. Would have loved to see how you competed against a stronger opponent, because you would probably beat them as well.

    Tons of momentum for next year. Gary Anderson is the best coach in the state right now.

    Best team in the state, not so sure they werent BCS worthy? I think so, close loses at Wisconsin and BYU. Great season no matter how you slice it.


    Big UPS and congrats to the Aggies!

    Would Chuckie Keeton be at Utah State IF Riley Nelson had stayed at Utah State?

    Utah State fans can thank BYU for accepting Riley Nelson's transfer.

    Amazing season Aggies! Thank you Coaches and Players. I have been an Aggie fan for decades and have never had so much following Aggie football as I have this year. What a great way to finish up in the WAC and looking forward to moving on to the MWC.

    Imagine what the next couple of years will bring with Keeton getting better every year.

    Go Big Blue!!!
