THE TRENDS

For Utah State: Although Colorado State leads the all-time series between the two sides, Utah State has won the last two and five of the last eight.

For Colorado State: The Rams started the season 1-3 but have won their last two games. They never scored more than 23 points in any of those first four games but have averaged 34 in their last two.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Can the Utah State defense be up for the challenge of facing a Colorado State offense that is playing well right now? The Aggies have struggled pretty mightily at times on that side of the ball this season, even against offenses that aren’t all that good. The Utah State offense has mostly been up to the task of staying with teams, but surely they’d prefer to not have to play from behind all of the time.

KEY PLAYER

Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State: McBride is the top pass-catching tight end in the country. His 593 receiving yards rank 16th in the country among wide receivers and tight ends.

“Explosive offense. Play ya fast, play in tempo, get the ball vertically down the field and really stretch your defense. They’ve done a great job. Really well-coached outfit, really well-coached team. I’m not surprised.” — Colorado State head coach Steve Addazio on Utah State

“They’re built big. Gonna play with as many big bodies and tight ends as they possibly can and extend gaps and play physical football.” — Utah State head coach Blake Anderson on Colorado State
