Game Preview

What to expect when Utah has the ball: I expect a balanced offense to help ease Terrance Cain or Jordan Wynn into the game plan. Don't be surprised if Matt Asiata gets more touches this game than he generally did last season. The Utes aren't likely to push the envelope when it comes to offensive ingenuity - so the play calling might be a bit more conservative than we'd like.

What to expect when Utah State has the ball: Gary Andersen has brought in the spread offense, so expect just that. The Aggies wil spread the field out as much as possible, especially when they utilize Diondre Borel's running ability.

How Utah wins: Show up. It's USU - not Alabama. It can't get much more straight forward than that. If the Utes don't turn the ball over a billion times and their offense isn't a complete mess, they should easily win this game.

Lucky G. O'Utes is back and ready to jig his way through another memorable season!


I be drinkin' some sin when me Utes win!
