The Utah State Aggies are looking to keep heading in the right direction as improving to six wins was a huge step forward for the program. However they need to finish off tight games especially against conference level teams.
2018 Utah State Aggies Predictions: Team Strengths
Quarterback Wonder: The Utah State Aggies have found their quarterback and one for the long-term as freshmen Jordan Love will get the start once again. Often freshmen quarterbacks have a rough season as they adapt from the change of high school level to College, but Love did not waste anytime.
Love had a great season as he finished with 1,631 passing yards and eight touchdowns. On his throws, love would complete 55 percent of his attempts as he looks to improve in that category.
Offensive Line Power: One of the main reasons why the freshmen quarterback will succeed with the Aggies is due to the amazing performance and experience this offensive line holds in Utah State.
They will be returning five starting offensive linemen as they some of the best in the nation that include Roman Andrus and Quin Ficklin.
The Aggies also have a new freshmen coming up that could knock out some of the veterans because of his style of play and size.
2018 Utah State Aggies Team Weaknesses:
Who’s Out Wide?: It is the last piece to the puzzle for the Utah State Aggies as they need to find who the top wide receiver will be.
The Aggies have the offensive line and quarterback, but they do not have a legit wideout that opposing teams should be afraid of.
At the moment, the leader of the receiving corps is Ron’quavion Tarver who finished the season with 569 receiving yards on 48 catches along with six scores.
He will most likely get double coverage every go as they need someone on the left side, most likely the slot to take the leadership role.
Utah State Aggies Prediction: 7-6
It is a slow and steady marathon for the Utah State Aggies as they have another improving season. It is nothing fancy as they reach another bowl game which will be seven out of the past eight years, but give another year the Aggies could be fighting for the top spot.
The wide receivers will be key to watch as the season comes to a start, as they need to help the sophomore quarterback get comfortable.
