The Rebels are hoping to shake off a two-game losing skid as they travel to Romney Stadium to take on the Aggies. Sophomore QB Max Gilliam now has the task of taking over for Armani Rogers, who has a broken toe.
After an opening weekend loss to Michigan State, the Aggies have reeled off 4 straight wins. Utah State nearly pulled the upset over Sparty on the road in week 1 of the season. A 38 – 31 loss didn’t let this team get down on themselves, and the Aggies offense has simply been flying around.
UNLV QB Max Gilliam made his fist career start last weekend against New Mexico, and let’s just say it did not go well. Gilliam went 15 for 35 and only accumulated 123 passing yards with two touchdowns and a pick.
Gilliam was thrown in to the fire after Armani Rogers broke a toe in the Arkansas State game.
Brandon Presley led all receivers last week, but he only caught 4 balls for 53 yards and a score. Presley only has 7 catches for the entire season thus far.
The Reel defense fell apart in the second quarter against New Mexico, after a scoreless first quarter between them. UNLV were down 29 – 0 by halftime, and matters never improved a bit for the Rebels. New Mexico came away with a 50 – 14 win, and now more questions have to be answered.
Can Gilliam lead this team to where it needs to be, and can the defense hold up if they’re on the field too much? Utah State will certainly provide quite a test this weekend for UNLV, so the answers better come quickly.
Utah State Aggies
The Aggies are putting up an average 50.2 points per outing this year, which is good for second in the nation. Sophomore QB Jordan Love is certainly showing his composure in his second season with the Aggie program. Love has completed 1108 of his 163 pass attempts this season, good for 66.3% on the year.
Jordan Love was certainly key in the Aggies win over BYU last Friday. He threw for 4 touchdowns and went 18 for 28 passing in the 45 – 20 win.
Despite the win last weekend, Utah State had some major issues last weekend to note. Penalties are accumulating by the dozens now, as Utah State committed 12 penalties accounting for 125 yards of field position against BYU. The defense did cause and recover two fumbles, and held BYU to 1 of 9 on third down conversions. In particular, the run defense for the Aggies was outstanding last weekend. The Cougars leading rusher had 25 yards on the ground against Utah State’s defense.
My first thought about this game went towards the total, but then 63 appeared and it made it a little tougher. To reach a number like that, we will likely need both teams to contribute towards that number, and I don’t trust the UNLV offense at all.

The suggestion here goes toward the first half handicap, trusting that Utah State will come out hungry. The Aggies defense is opportunistic and playing well, and are coming off a nice win over rivals BYU.
