Chuckie Keeton is back and that is all what, well mostly, matters for Utah State as they head down South to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. Could this be the game that Keeton and the Aggies finally get over the hump and beat a big name opponent?
The Aggies have come close against BYU (twice), Wisconsin and Auburn. Their one big win against a named opponent was beating Utah two seasons ago, but that Ute team did not even go to a bowl game that year. '
Keeton is said to back in full health and have plenty of weapons at wide receiver and a healthy Joe Hill at running back. The offensive line is being rebuilt some and that is a concern going up against a SEC team, however the Volunteers are building in a new defensive line, plus an offensive line.
The Utah State defense will be a force Sunday night and it starts with the linebacking group of Zach Vigil, Nick Vigil and Kyler Fackrell. This group will give Tennessee troubles on Sunday night and especially so since there is a new quarterback under center for the Volunteers in Justin Worley but he is a senior and been around the program for a bit.
