This is a huge opportunity for Utah State to pull off an upset against a top 15 Michigan State team on the road. The Spartans have a defense that will be one of the best in the country and will easily be the toughest test for this Aggies offense.
However, the second year of the David Yoast spread attack will be a scheme which Michigan State is not extremely familiar with. Couple that with the Aggies who look to have a running game could mean that Utah State could do some damage.
Jordan Love is the guy at quarterback and Ron’Quavion Tarver at wide receiver is a combination that has some real potential. One other area that is being overlooked is that the Aggies offensive line averages just over 300 pounds per player. That is a Big Ten offensive line and will be able to push around the Spartans defensive line, at least a little bit.
The Utah State defense will have some success because the Spartans were just an average unit last year in most major categories, however, they return a lot of that talent. So, if the experience improves then this Spartans offense could deliver a big blow. Plus, there is a reason that Michigan State is more than a three-touchdown favorite.
