I was incredibly impressed with how Utah State responded last year despite losing leader Chuckie Keeton - and breaking in a new coach - last season. Keeton is one of the best quarterbacks in the country and he is set for a strong senior season under second-year coach Matt Wells.
But Keeton better have a strong season because the Aggies only welcome back eight total starters, with just three on offense. The Aggies rode the strength of a Top 10 defense last year. But they only have four of their top 11 tacklers back in the fold and will be rebuilt on both sides of the rock.
Utah State does not have an easy schedule this year, mainly due to the quality of their road opponents. The Aggies open in SEC Country at Tennessee. They also have games at BYU, at improving Colorado State and at Boise State to close the season.
Despite a huge 11-2 year in 2012, success is new to the Utah State program. Keeton will keep them afloat. But this isn't a particularly deep or talented roster. They are No. 110 in the nation in experience and, like Boise State, they are finding out that life the Mountain West is noticeably more difficult than feasting on the teams in the WAC.
I would definitely play this team 'under'. I think they will have enough to get to bowl eligibility. But I don't think this team has the upside to really challenge Boise for the league title.
