Utah State (2-4) vs. Fresno State (1-6) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Oct. 22
Game Time: 10:30 pm
Venue: Romney Stadium, Logan, UT
Network: CBS Sports Network
It’s the battle of embattled head coaches, with Tim DeRuyter’s era on life support at Fresno State after a miserable start, and Matt Wells struggling at Utah State after losing three straight and four of the last five.
The Aggies just can’t get their offense going, even with a terrific quarterback in Kent Myers and a good enough running game to keep things moving. It’s a problem that top back Devante Mays is struggling with a knee injury – the offense can’t afford to lose weapons – but for the season to turn around, the passing game has to start making something happen down the field.
Fresno State can’t get anything working at all.
The offensive line isn’t generating any sort of a push for a ground game that hasn’t shown up, and while Chason Virgil is doing what he can, he’s not enough.
The Bulldogs aren’t creating their own breaks, turning it over 12 times on the year and with just one takeaway in the last three games.
Utah State will screw up less than Fresno State will.
