Wyoming at Utah State

Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 4:01 PM (Romney Stadium)

USU -6    O/U 50

TV: ESPNU

The Wyoming Cowboys (6 - 3, 3 - 2 CONF) are on the road this week as they square off with the Utah State Aggies (5 - 4, 4 - 1 CONF). Utah State will be hosting this game at the Romney Stadium in Logan, UT.  Utah State will be looking to build off of their victory over Fresno State last week in what should be a close matchup. Wyoming just dealt with a heartbreaking overtime loss to #22 BSU and the Cowboys could still be feeling the extra football. 

Wyoming will be taking the field with a team that is elite on defense and more than capable on offense. Wyoming is scoring 28 PPG on offense behind the efforts of big running back, Xazavian Valladay (755 yards, 5 TD). The Wyoming Cowboys should be amped up to put pressure on Utah State as their defense is surrendering just 18 PPG. 

Utah State will be handing the reigns over to the big arm of their QB, Jordan Love (2,402 yards, 11  TD, 12 INT).  Love has the ability to stretch the defense. If Wyoming can't slow down the Utah State passing game, then this contest could be over for the Cowboys sooner than later. Utah State is averaging 28 PPG on offense while giving up 27 PPG to opposing teams on defense. Utah State can't win in a shootout, so this game could come down to the trenches.

The Aggies shave the better quarterback in this game and that will make a difference on the day. However, what else makes the difference is the fact that the game will be a close battle and the Cowboy have struggled when the games are close. We like Utah State to beat Wyoming. Final Score Prediction, Utah State Aggies win, but do not cover 27 - 24.
