LOGAN — The Utah State Aggies had another impressive conference win this past weekend as they topped UTSA 48-17. Sophomore quarterback Chuckie Keeton once again showed his incredible talents, throwing for 340 yards on the day, including three touchdowns. Senior running back Kerwynn Williams combined with sophomore running back Joe Hill to run 111 yards and three additional scores on just 20 carries.

The Aggies are now 7-2 (3-0 WAC) on the season and are proving themselves week after week and garnering national attention. Not only are local news outlets, such as the Deseret News, calling for the Aggies to be included in the nation’s Top-25 list, but outlets such as The Examiner and the Chicago Tribune. While USU has received four votes in the Coaches Poll, many believe the Aggies are underrated.

The Texas State Bobcats are coming off a difficult loss in which they led San Jose State 20-17 at halftime before giving up 14 unanswered points in a 31-20 loss. Read the recap of their game from the Kansas City Star.

The Texas State newspaper The University Star wrote a game preview about the upcoming match-up. The Sports Network also wrote up a preview article about the two team’s first-ever football meeting.

The Aggies have one more week before locking horns with Louisiana Tech and cannot afford to lose focus against the option attack of the Bobcats. Check out what head coach Gary Andersen and a few of his players had to say about a variety of topics in this week’s Aggie press conference.

With the football team on a roll, it’s also fun to note that the basketball season is just about to tip-off and that the Aggies have been tabbed to take the top spot in the WAC in their eigth and final year in the conference before heading out for the Mountain West Conference.
