    Non-Conference Games: Weber State, at USC, Arkansas State, at BYU

    Games vs. the West: Fresno State, San Diego State, at Nevada

    5 Keys To The Schedule

    – The Aggies have to go to USC early in the year, and travel to BYU to end the regular season, but the Weber State and Arkansas State games have to be must wins in non-conference play. 3-1 outside of the Mountain West would be terrific.
    – The Mountain showdown against Boise State is on the road. So is the key date at Colorado State. With those two games coming after the Mountain West opener against Air Force, USU will pretty much know its conference fate by October 15th.
    – Having to face San Diego State from the West will be tough, as will the road game at Nevada. Hosting Fresno State isn’t all that bad.
    – The Aggies have to go on the road for three of the four November games wrapped around the home finale against New Mexico. There can’t be a slip at Wyoming to start it all off.
    – WATCH OUT FOR … Arkansas State. Just because it’s a date against a Sun Belt team at home, that doesn’t mean it’s a layup. The Red Wolves might be good enough to battle for their conference title, and they’re going to be dangerous with the Aggies coming off the road trip to USC.
