    Aggies Victorious Over In-State Rival
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    In the opening quarter, Utah jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the blink of an eye on big play after big play after big play and QB Travis Wilson rushed in for the opening score. Utah State and QB Chuckie Keeton answered right back with a drive of their own that chewed up over 5 minutes of the quarter and Keeton snuck in from 1 yard out to knot things up at 7. Into the 2nd quarter, Utah State stretched things out with a bend but don't break defense that saw Utah missed 2 field goals from 40-45 yards. However, the Aggie offense looked unstoppable with Chuckie Keeton leading the way. Running back's Joe Hill & Kelvin Lee also got solid yardage on the ground. Both backs found the endzone in the quarter to give Utah State a 21-7 lead. However, EA Sports & Utah came out with just one of them drives that no matter what you do they are determined like hell to score. It was QB Travis Wilson using his legs once again on a option keeper and bounced in from 16 yards out to trim the Aggie lead to 21-14. That was as close as the Utes would get in this one though. Keeton and the ground game marched right back down the field and rushed in another touchdown with FB Robert Marshall to head to the locker rooms up 28-14. In the 2nd half, the Aggie defense went again with the bend but don't break and allowed no more QB runs or points on the board. The offense lost a little spark behind Chuckie Keeton in the 2nd half but did boot through 2 field goals with kicker Nick Diaz to get the 34-14 victory over in-state rival Utah.

    Started out rough for Aggie State on the road against Air Force. The triple option couldn't be stopped & 3 total yards of offense in the first quarter saw Utah State down 17-0 early on. Falcon QB Karson Roberts & HB Jon Lee busted off big play after big play early on while Aggie QB Chuckie Keeton struggled to get things rolling. The spark for the Aggies was running back Joe Hill took a kickoff back 102 yards to get Utah State on the board. Magically after that the Utah State defense came to play. The 2nd quarter was all Aggies, midway through the quarter the trimmed the deficit to a touchdown, 17-10 and then after another defensive stop WR Ronald Butler capped off a 10 play drive with a 4 yard touchdown reception from Keeton to knot things up at 17.

    The 2nd half got even crazier. Utah State snagged the only score of the 3rd quarter with a Kelvin Lee 1 yard touchdown run that was setup after a 49 yard reception by Ronald Butler and the Aggies led for the first time 24-17. In the 4th quarter though, the Air Force offense got things going again. It was Roberts & Lee with the triple option attack that tied things up at 24 on a 4 yard Jon Lee run. Utah State answered right back with a quick drive of their own that saw Joe Hill bounce in from 5 yards out. Back and forth these two teams were going. This time Jon Lee didn't need several plays to move the ball on the Aggie defense. A handoff and horrible tackling by the Aggies saw Lee go 60 yards down field to once again tie these two squads up at 31. The ensuing kickoff looked much like the return by Hill in the first half, this time Hill would go 97 yards on the kick return to put the Aggies on top for good. A late field goal from Utah State sealed the deal and Utah State escapes 41-31.

    Upset In Logan
    [​IMG]

    Earlier in the week, Utah State's coach was quoted to saying "Wisconsin will run for 700 yards on us". He wasn't joking. The #16 Badgers opened the game with the ball & went on an 11 play, 80 yard drive that consumed over 5 minutes of the opening quarter. The sad thing is, Wisconsin didn't attempt one pass. A consistent hand off to RB's James White & Melvin Gordon was enough to keep the chains moving and the Aggies were showing no signs of stopping it. Wisconson got on the board first with a White touchdown run and were up 7-0 after the first quarter.

    The 2nd quarter was a little more exciting. Utah State went 3 and out with their first possession but the defense forced a punt after a holding call put a damper on another Wisconsin drive. Midway through the quarter, Utah State put a 10 play drive together and scored from 1 yard out with fullback Robert Marshall. However, Wisconsin went right back down the field mostly with the ground game. QB Tanner McEvoy did attempt his first 3 passes of the game on this drive, completing 2 & throwing a 3 yard touchdown to WR Jared Abbredaris on the other. The Aggie offense struggled on the next drive but the defense showed signs of life not allowing Wisconsin to get anymore points before the half. With 45 seconds left and the ball, Utah State QB Chuckie Keeton went to work. The junior quarterback connected with WR's Ronald Butler & Bruce Natson on 3 consecutive plays to move inside the Wisconsin 5 yard line with 7 seconds before half. A slant to Butler tied things up at 14 headed to the half.

    In the 2nd half, it was a defensive battle. The two teams went back and forth for much of the 3rd quarter but as time ticked away the Aggies gained some momentum. Keeton & the trio of running back's moved down the field and deep into Wisconsin territory. Facing a 3rd down in the redzone, Keeton tossed his 2nd touchdown of the day to tight end Keegan Anderson in the corner of the endzone to give Utah State there first lead of the game 21-14 headed to the 4th and final quarter. The Wisconsin ground game went to work again to start the quarter and Tanner McEvoy did just enough with his arm & legs to keep moving the chains. As the Badgers got closer to the endzone, the Aggie defense got tougher & tougher. Wisconsin faced a 3rd & goal from the 8 and the Aggies failed to leave a man spying McEvoy.

    The transfer QB from South Carolina scrambled towards the endzone but two Aggie defenders met himi at the goal line and the QB fumbled into the end zone and it was recovered by Utah State with a little under 5 minutes left in the game. Sadly for the Aggie offense, they were unable to do anything with the possession and went a quick 3 and out. The Badgers offense started moving the chains again. Wisconsin facing a similiar situation as earlier found themselves inside the Utah State 10 yard line and a big 3rd down. It was former walk on WR Jared Abbredaris hauling in his 2nd touchdown of the game from 6 yards out to tie the game at 21 with 2:42 left. The Aggies were rather conservative on there next drive and opted to do there best not to turn it over and give the game away. As time ticked away it looked like overtime but Aggie running back Kelvin Lee busted off a 21 yard run to move past midfield & then 3rd string back Joey Demartino busted off a 13 yard run. That setup the Aggies for a field goal and the clock ticked down to 4 seconds. Wisconsin iced kicker Nick Diaz but the kid showed no pressure and booted through the 25 yard field goal to give Utah State the upset over #16 Wisconsin 24 -21.

    Beehive Boot Battle
    [​IMG]

    I follow college football pretty damn close but I had no idea this match up was called the Battle for the Beehive Boot lol. The in-state rivalry started out rather slow with Utah State getting on the board late in the 1st on a Kelvin Lee 4 yard touchdown run. The 2nd quarter saw the Cougars lose star QB Taysom Hill. The BYU offense could barely muster a first down and only reached midfield once in the opening half. For the Aggie offense, Chuckie Keeton struggled in the pass game but luckily the two headed monster in the back field of Kelvin Lee & Joe Hill carried the team in the first half. Keeton however did throw a touchdown to Alex Wheat Jr & kicker Nick Diaz tacked on a field goal before half as the teams went into the locker rooms with Utah State up 17-0.

    In the 2nd half, BYU clawed back in after a successful drive to open the 2nd half. Back up QB Jason Munns went wild and moved the Cougar offense with ease, then found WR Cody Huffman on a screen that went 37 yards for a touchdown. After Keeton's 2nd & final interception of the game, BYU pounced early in the 4th with a 2 yard touchdown toss to WR JD Falslev midway through the 4th to trim the deficit 20-14. The Aggies gave the dagger though with RB Kelvin Lee taking a hand off and a beautiful cut up midfield to go 57 yards untouched and a big defensive stop on the next series saw Utah State knock off BYU 27-14.

    Poor Performance but Good Enough

    Utah State traveled into New Mexico to face a winless Lobo's squad. The first quarter saw each team snag 7, the Aggies rattled off a 15 play drive that ended on a RB Kelvin Lee 1 yard run & then New Mexico went on a drive of their own that resulted in WR Lamar Jordan hauling in a Quinton McCown 24 yard touchdown. The touchdown play seemed to take 10 minutes with the protection & Jordan standing in double coverage did not matter as they tied things up at 7. The 2nd quarter was all Utah State and it seemed they were going to put this one away early. WR Ronald Butler hauled in a 4 yard TD from QB Chuckie Keeton & TE DJ Tialavea was left wide open in the flat from 5 yards out to give Utah State a 21-7 lead at half.

    The 3rd was scoreless & the 4th quarter got a little scary for Utah State. New Mexico found there success again on letting the QB stand in the pocket for hours & launching rockets into double coverage to convert 3rd downs & touchdowns. McCown tossed a 20 yarder to RB Kasey Carrier to bring them within 21-14, Utah State added a field goal on there next drive and then under a minute left on 4th down, New Mexico found Lamar Jordan on a 45 yard bomb again in double coverage with 10 seconds left to inch even closer 24-21. Utah State recovered the onside and escapes what would've been a embarrassing loss for the program on the road.
