Utah State clutches out victory over Akron to advance to Cayman Islands title game – Cache Valley Daily

Utah State cheerleader. Photo by Robert K. Scott Utah State pulled off its best quality win of the young season, topping preseason MAC favorite Akron 65-62 and advancing to the championship game of the Cayman Islands Classic in the process. The Aggies led for 78 percent of the game, and for each of the last five minutes and 40 seconds of the second half, but never pulled away from the Zips. USU’s largest lead came with 8:52 left in the game when it led 49-43. Akron never went away, making Utah State sweat it out in the final minutes of the game. Over the last five minutes of the game, Utah State stretched its lead to four points three different times, only for Akron to draw back within two. The Zips never tied the game, but did keep pushing the game to a one-possession contest. The back-and-forth largely came from Great Osobor, who led USU with 24 points and 11 rebounds, and Akron’s star forward Enrique Freeman, who led all scorers with 25 points. In the few minutes, Osobor had to be subbed out on defensive possessions since he picked up his fourth foul with 2:26 remaining and the Zips were

How to watch, projected starters, injuries – Cache Valley Daily

Following a dominant victory over Marshall, Utah State will set its sights on a far more formidable foe in Akron. The Zips are undefeated this season with wins on the road at South Dakota State and a neutral site victory over Florida International already on their resume. It’ll be a test to rival the Aggies’ trip to Bradley and also a chance to show growth since that loss to the Braves.

Aggies must get bigger or stay mediocre – Cache Valley Daily

Utah State vs Boise State football on Nov. 18, 2023. Photo by Clint Allen LOGAN – Utah State head coach Blake Anderson spent much of his post-game comments following the Aggies’ humiliating 45-10 loss to Boise State talking, not about the game but rather about one major improvement his team needed. After all, there’s not a whole lot to go into detail on when you lose a game by 35 points. The week leading up to the loss to the Broncos, Anderson stated it would be “a critical part of the game” to be able to control the line of scrimmage. Well, Utah State didn’t not stop the run, giving up a season-worst 352 rushing yards, and it did not hold the line on offense, giving up nine sacks between the three quarterbacks that ended up playing in the game. Not exactly controlling the line of scrimmage by most definitions. “We got manhandled on both fronts,” Anderson said after the game. “Our O-line got manhandled and our defensive front got manhandled, and that’s that’s the nature of the night. We’ve got to close the gap somehow. We’ve got to recruit and got to developed and get better in those areas
