Found October 03, 2013 on TornBySports:
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 are by a combined 7 points, on the road to Utah and USC.  They are winning by an average score of 54-13.  San Jose State, the same team that gave BYU fits and ultimately snuck one against the Cougars in 2012, was a possible dark horse for the Aggies this season.  Not so fast my friend; that game finished with the team from Logan winning by 28.  And the last team on their schedule that poses any threat, the Broncos from Boise, is still a mystery to me.  I’m not so sure they can handle the defensive presence that Utah State can bring.  So that brings us to Friday. What can we expect from this game in Logan on Frid...

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...
