    Utah state is the second best program in the state. Unlike byu, they were just a couple field goals away last year from a prestigious BCS bowl.

    I think byu and usu will continue to have a good rivalry for the recruiting leftovers and for the right to claim second best team in the state.

    Go Aggies!

    Utah State wins this game for two reasons. 1) Quarterback play Keeton is better than Hill no question. 2) Offensive line play Utah States o line is much better than BYU's.

    BYU's defense will spend way too much time on the field because they will do what Utah did and stop the run and force the pass. BYU will win against teams with bad defenses but will lose to teams with good quarterbacks and good defenses.

    It will be close because of BYU's defense, but BYU will again struggle to score. It could get ugly if BYU has a ad defensive game as they have at least one every year.

    Article quote: "Limiting Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton is the obvious focus of the BYU defense leading up to Friday's matchup between the two teams. .... The junior quarterback has riddled opposing defenses this season with 71 percent passing and 17 touchdowns as opposed to just a single interception. He's also rushed the ball for 224 yards and another two touchdowns through five games."

    Now THAT is a smokin' hot QB. It'll be tough to shut him down. A true test of BYU's defense.

    BYU by 6.

    Go Cougars!

    They'll do it. There is no doubt BYU will do it. So far all teams that aren't in the WAC 2.0 have done it.
