Welcome to the Utah State edition of Picks of the Week. In the article below you will find what some of our writers expect to see this week in the USU game. Please tell us what you are expecting in the comments section below.
Chesh: Like the Utes, the Aggies face a vastly inferior FCS opponent and it will be a good way to start things off and get things rolling. The Aggies lost many playmakers to the NFL but they still have Chuck E. Keeton and Kerwynn Williams controlling things on the offensive side of the ball. The Aggies start things off on a positive note, looking to build off of that confidence as they host the Utes in week 2. Aggies win 41-16.

Andrew: Utah State probably petitioned to the NCAA to have games shortened to 46 minutes. Taking away a couple game-losing drives by opposing teams, Utah State was poised for a true breakout season. With Turbin gone, it will be interesting to see where the running game goes, but I want to see the growth of Keaton. He could be on the verge of greatness and this might be the year to get him there. Utah State should take this game with ease.

Robby: The Aggies are going to get a pretty solid win with Chuckie Keeton showing that’s he’s the best QB in the state. 31-14, 31-17- ish sounds about right.
