It’s an in-state battle that the national audience will witness in the second week of the 2015 NCAA Football season, with the Utes and the Aggies going head to head at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Kickoff is set for 9:00 PM EST on ESPN2 Friday night.
The Aggies are likely feeling quite fortunate after making it through their opener with Southern Utah, as they took down the in-state opponent 12-9 despite being a 31-point home favorite.
Utah State came back from a 9-5 deficit with a strong 88-yard punt return by Andrew Rodriguez — there was less than five minutes to play in the contest at that point.
Two of the team’s points came on a failed PAT by the Thunderbirds. This attempt was taken to the house.
Chuckie Keeton had troubles giving his team a strong passing presence, going 16-of-33 while pumping out just 110 yards and an interception.
Lujan Hunt collected 82 yards on 23 carries.
Utah took down the Jim Harbaugh-led Michigan Wolverines on opening day, 24-17. It did it with a strong showing on the defensive end of the field.
Michigan had a 355-337 yardage edge; however, three INTs was this team’s ultimate downfall.
Travis Wilson was effective for the Utes when it came to the short-passing performance, as he completed 24 of his 33 passes for 208 yards and a pick.
Devontae Booker helped the team control the offense on the turf with 69 yards on 23 carries with a touchdown. Wilson added 53 yards and another touchdown.
Booker was on the receiving end of seven passes for 55 yards — Britain Covey caught five balls for 58 yards.
