The Utah State Aggies have come oh-so-close to upsetting Power 5 Conference opponents in the past two seasons.
Earlier this year, USU had a 95% chance of winning, according to ESPN’s FPI, with a lead on Wake Forest and only 2:41 remaining in the game. However, the Demon Deacons eventually pulled out the victory. 38-35, in the first game of the season.
Last season, the Aggies fell just short of upsetting #11 Michigan State in the season opener.
USU defensive back, Cameron Haney, said they’ve been counted as the underdog before, and they’re used to it.
“We live for these moments,” said Haney. “This is nothing new to us, we understand we have to finish games. That’s been our problems, it’s been ‘almost.'”
The player to watch in blue and white on Saturday is Utah State’s quarterback Jordan Love. The junior is shooting up NFL Draft boards after a breakout season as a sophomore in 2018. Love is sixth in the NCAA in completions per game (26.3). He’s also accumulated 6,406 passing yards in just 2+ seasons in Logan, Utah.
