Our Selection : Unfortunately for the Spartans the Aggies are very strong running team and to make matters worse Utah State’s offense is very balanced. So, loading up the box is unlikely to slow down this attack. The public and some of us included over played San Jose State’s solid showing against Stanford. Small play on the Utah State Aggies minus the hefty point spread.
Take the Aggies -8.5 points at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
