    Why Utah State Will Win

    Fresno State’s offense continues to be next-level bad. The Bulldogs can’t run, can’t throw, can’t overcome a defense that’s giving up yards in chunks. Utah State’s offense isn’t exactly humming, but the defense has been dominant – again – against the run. The defense was able to keep Utah in check and is doing a terrific job of getting off the field. Fresno State just won’t go anywhere.

    Why Fresno State Will Win

    Utah State’s Chuckie Keeton-less offense can’t seem to find its groove, either. The running game finally worked last week with a big day against Colorado State, but the passing game has been painfully average. The biggest problem? There’s nothing happening on third downs. Oddly enough, there weren’t too many problems against Utah, but the offense converted just seven of 27 chances over the last two games and was 1-of-16 in the opener against Southern Utah.

    What’s Going To Happen?

    The Utah State defense is too good and too tough to let the awful Fresno State offense get rolling. Watch out – as good as Chuckie Keeton was/it, Kent Myers, now that he has the Utah State quarterback gig to himself, will turn out to be even more effective.
