Utah State has played poorly all year, but need wins in order to keep their postseason hopes alive. QB Jordan Love and Kent Myers need to be a better leaders at quarterback if the Aggies have a chance to win.
UNLV should win this game if Armani Rodgers steps up and plays his position. If not, the Rebels will be in for a dog fight. Look for the Rebels defense to get one or two key stops late, for the win. Take UNLV to cover at home.
