Utah State has tough road vs. Wyoming, Oklahoma
The struggling football program Utah State fell Thursday, August 30, to UNLV 23-16 at home in Logan, Utah, heading into a tough game against an improved Wyoming squad and a murderous game against Oklahoma in Norman. USU, determined to end a 10-year bowl drought where they've rarely won over 3 games in that time, played a decent first half against the Rebels, leading 10-3 at halftime. However, the defense got hammered in the second-half due to UNLV head coach Mike Sanford's adjustments, and the offense reverted to their inept form of last season, where they didn't score on offense until the fifth game vs. Idaho. Things won't get easier the next two weeks, either. Week 4 presents San Jose State, which may be a winnable game if the Spartans aren't living up to preseason hype.
