To sat the least, this game between Utah State and Colorado State is the game of the week and will have a huge impact on what team could win the Mountain Division. Colorado State needs a win since they already has a loss and Utah State can all but eliminate the Rams with a road win.
Both teams are on a roll with Utah State having won two in a row with wins over BYU and Air Force, and Colorado State has won four in a row. This team features conferences best two quarterbacks in Utah State's Darrell Garretson and Colorado State Garret Grayson and also at the very least two of the three best wide outs in Hunter Sharp for the Aggies and Rashard HIggins for the Rams.
Defensively Utah State has the edge with linebackers Nick Vigil and Zach Vigil, plus the secondary is a strong unit that has six interceptions as a unit. Colorado State has the edge in the running game with Dee Hart. This is a game that will likely be close throughout as both teams are evenly matched.
Now, make sure to watch this game and luckily for Mountain West fans this is not a late night kickoff.
