NCAA Football: Utah State at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Monday once again. A weekend devoid of football wasn’t very enjoyable was it? But MWC teams are back in action this weekend as Bowl Season will be kicking off. Stay on top of the news with the articles we have for you today, featuring lots of Aggie coverage.

Anderson back at Utah State.

Gary Anderson was first a fun name to throw out in the Utah State search. Then he became what was thought to be a lead candidate. That was later refuted by other reports. Now, it seems some of the Aggie boosters made big push for Anderson to return, and his hiring was officially announced Sunday afternoon.

Tedford King of the Bonuses.

No really. He has earned more in bonus money than any other college football this season and he may not be done yet. Thus far, he’s received $800,000 and could go over a million for winning their bowl game and also depending on home attendance totals. Having not yet completed two seasons on the job, Tedford has totaled $2.2 million in bonus money. That’s good!

Wolf Pack comes back against #20 Sun Devils

Down 15 in the first half, Nevada showed they can get hot at any time and overcome any deficit. Though not a great strategy to employ every game, it gives the team a confidence boost to have that in their back pocket. This allowed the Wolf Pack to move to 9-0 on the young season, good for their best start in the school’s D1 history.

Falcons getting creative in Athletic Director search.

Jim Knowlton left Air Force for Cal back in April and doing so increased his salary four-fold. They are trying to level the salary playing field a bit for their next hire. The AD position will now be paid through the Air Force Athletic Association Corp. instead of the government. This allows them to pay a higher salary, as the AFAAC will cover the AD salary, as they do with many of the athletic department’s head coaching positions.
