Utah State (5-1) vs. Wyoming (2-5) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Fabulous all season, the Utah State offense has been unstoppable since almost beating Michigan State in the opener, and now it has a real, honest shot to take the Mountain West title by ripping through a mediocre schedule – at least, up until the regular season finale against Boise State.
The Aggies are second in the nation in scoring offense behind Alabama, the defense is amazing at getting behind the line, and Jordan Love and the passing game have been fantastic.
Wyoming can’t really score.
The Cowboys have the talent on defense, but they’re last in the nation at converting on third downs, and they’re just not putting up points.
Utah State averages close to 52 points per game. Wyoming has scored a total of 60 points in the last five games combined.
Can they come up with something special at home to keep alive bowl hopes? As bad as Wyoming has been, with Colorado State, San Jose State, Air Force and New Mexico to close, it’s absolutely possible to run the table and get to six wins.
But you can’t win if you don’t score more points than the other team. Utah State is simply too efficient and too strong on both sides of the ball. The Aggies will score ten points in the first quarter, and Wyoming won’t be able to over come that, even though the Cowboy secondary will keep this from getting out of hand.
