Utah State Aggies
The Aggies turned in a 6-7 record in 2017 that was a massive step up from the 3-9 record the team turned in the year before. In addition to improving their regular season record, the Aggies also made some headway in the Mountain West Conference albeit not by much. Utah State would post a 4-4 record in Mountain West play to finish 4th in the Mountain Division of the Conference. Naturally, the Aggies didn’t get to compete for the Mountain West championship. The program did however, get an invitation to the Arizona Bowl. There they would face New Mexico State in one tight contest that ended up going into overtime. In the end, Utah State came up short 20-26 to close out the season with a 2-game losing streak. Matt Wells will return in 2018 to lead this program marking his 6th season at the helm.
Players to Watch: Jordan Love (1,631 passing yards, 8 TD, 6 INT), LaJuan Hunt (828 rushing yards, 11 TD, 4.9 AVG), and Ron’quavion Tarver (569 receiving yards, 7 TD, 48 REC).
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans are coming off a highly successful 10-3 season and will be setting the bar even higher in 2018. Since they have most of their offensive stars returning, Michigan State should be able to be a threat right away. Last year they fell short in the Big Ten race to No. 5 Ohio State. Nevertheless, Michigan State’s 7-2 conference record is nothing to dismiss so easily. And while they didn’t get a chance to compete for a Big Ten championship, they did get to compete in the Holiday Bowl. Ultimately Michigan State didn’t just compete, they pummeled Washington State 42-17. With that victory, the Spartans closed out the year with a 3-game winning streak. They’ll be looking to build on that streak against Utah State.
Players to Watch: Brian Lewerke (2,793 passing yards, 20 TD, 7 INT), LJ Scott (898 rushing yards, 8 TD, 4.5 AVG), and Felton Davis III (776 receiving yards, 9 TD, 55 REC).
