First and foremost, congratulations to Diondre Borel for becoming the 7th USU QB to pass for 5,000 yards, a great accomplishment, and I'm happy to see that it came during a win. Great player, great teammate, great person; he deserves to have a great senior year, and Eric Moats is going to make sure of that.

For those of you who don't know Moats, you will over the next few weeks. He's the most sure handed, consistent receiver on the field for the Aggies. The best comparison I can draw, Utah's Bradon Godfrey a couple years back. Those are two players who came from the same mold. Goes over the middle, makes the tough catches in traffic, and brings down everything thrown in his direction.

He was the one who caught the TD pass on the fake FG last week against Oklahoma that got called back due to a questionable call. Against Idaho State, he caught 3 passes for 65 yards and had a fantastic TD catch where he got lit up and held on for the score.

He's not the big play threat like Dontel Watkins or Xavier Martin, but Moats will consistently move the chains for the Aggies and make defenses pay for not knowing where he is at all times.
