The Cowboys are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in October and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Aggies are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 Friday games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games in October. The Cowboys are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
Wyoming struggled to win games to begin with, and now the Cowboys have a new quarterback on the field. This could get ugly. While I don't love big chalk, Utah State should be able to win this game big given everything in play.
