Found October 03, 2013 on Universal Takeover Sports Network:
Chuckie Keeton from Houston, Texas is the best quarterback you’ve never heard of. Keeton is a 20-year-old junior who plays for the Utah State Aggies. Chuckie’s dual threat ability makes him one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the nation. The third year starter played his high school career at Cypress Creek High School in Houston, Texas. Keeton was only a 2 star prospect coming into college. Chuckie had originally verbally committed to Air Force, but after a visit to Utah State Keeton changed his mind and decided to attend Utah State. Chuckie’s senior season he had 3,281 total yards and 29 touchdowns. His freshman year Chuckie Keeton started 8 games and played in 9 as a true freshman. His numbers were not eye popping but he completed 60.9 percent and only threw 2 interceptions. His 1200 yards and 11 touchdowns through the air were enough for him to keep the starting job into his sophomore season as he led the team to a 7-5 record. A devastating 24-23 loss to Ohio in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl cut the Aggies season short. Chuckie’s sophomore season is where things get interesting. Keetons coaches decided it was time for Chuckie to let the football fly. The 6’2, 200-pound quarterback threw 260 more passes than he did his freshman year bringing his total to 407. Of those 407, he completed 275 of them for a 67.6 completion percentage. I watched some film and you can see a huge improvement in his game. The arm strength and accuracy greatly improved, so did his overall pocket presence. It definitely showed as he threw 27 touchdowns and only 9 interceptions. Keetons rushing stats improved also, he rushed for 619 yards and 8 touchdowns after only rushing for 293 yards and 4 touchdowns as a freshman. The Aggies improved to an 11-2 record and got a staggering 41-15 victory against Toledo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. This is Chuckie Keeton’s junior season and while the nation is more aware if his presence he is still highly underrated. Like his sophomore season, Keetons Junior year has started with a bang. The Utah State Aggies moved from the WAC conference into a better Mountain West Conference. Chuckie has not missed a step at all in the move to a better conference. He is 2nd in the nation in passing touchdowns with 17; he’s in front of names like Teddy Bridgewater and reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel. Chuckie is also responsible for scoring the 2nd most points in the nation, once again ahead of big name quarterbacks who get more national exposure than he does. His passing yards are good enough to be ranked 9th in the nation with 1,362 yards. The Aggies have suffered two losses this year but the rest of their schedule sets up nicely for them. After two tough games against Boise State and rival BYU, they play a slew of mediocre teams. I can see Utah State going 9-3 this regular season, 11-3 including the postseason. As of now, the conference is close but I predict that Chuckie Keeton and the Utah State Aggies will be in the championship game against another great quarterback in Derek Carr and the Fresno State Bulldogs. If Keeton can pull that off it will be historic for the school, as well as huge for his career. He has already done wonders for the program and is probably the best quarterback to ever put on a Utah State Aggie uniform. His Heisman campaign has taken a hit with the two losses but if you ask me, Chuckie Keeton is a top 10 quarterback in the nation and he deserves more recognition than he has been getting.   Follow Me On Twitter: @JOnTheSidelines The post Career Spotlight: Chuckie Keeton appeared first on UTSN - The Universal Takeover Sports Network.

Cody Hoffman to Play Saturday

BYU wide receiver Cody Hoffman will play Saturday against Utah State. He is coming back from a suspension that kept him out of last week’s game against MTSU. Fantasy Outlook: Hoffman is BYU’s top target and is a very talented wideout. If you own him, you probably drafted him pretty high and that’s understandable. When he plays, he is as dynamic as any other receiver in the...

Utah State with a Nice Win on the Road

Utah State went on the road over the weekend to San Jose State for their second Mountain West encounter of the year.

Keeton threw for 260 yards and 3 touchdowns, along with rushing for 52 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Keeton now has 17 touchdowns to 1 interception with 1362...

Preview and Predictions: BYU vs. USU

The Matchup: With both teams coming off relatively easy wins BYU and USU will face off this Friday night at Romney Stadium in Logan.

BYU Keys to the game

BYU and Utah State – the battle for second place in the state.  BYU is looking to win 2 in a row for the first time this year, while USU is looking to avenge last year’s loss in Provo.  Right now the odds makers have USU a 6 point favorite at home – which is almost the same spread when they had BYU 7 point favorites at home against Utah, and we know how that turned out!...

Flashback: BYU uses 2nd and 4th quarters to distance itself from Utah State

On this date, exactly 26 years ago, the Brigham Young Cougars did what we all hope to see them do 48 hours from now--beat Utah State by 20-plus points. The game started even with each team scoring a field goal in the first quarter. Coincidentally, both field goals were 48-yard kicks. The Cougars would not be so kind to Utah State in the second quarter. BYU added two touchdowns...

The Battle for Second Best in Utah

Earlier this year I wrote about the Aggies.  I wasn’t very bullish on them at the time (which is ironic since their mascot is a bull, but I digress.)  I predicted they might be lucky to get to eight wins; certainly not more.  Losses against Utah, USC, BYU, Boise St. were all but a given.  The Aggies have played five games this season and boast a 3-2 record.  Those two losses...
