Utah St vs Colorado St
#14 Ranked Utah State looks to continue its special season as it travels to Fort Collins to face Colorado State on Saturday. "Itâs round seven for us and the biggest thing as you look ahead, itâs a tough place to win and they always play well there. We havenât won there since 2012 and weâre zero for our last two times in Fort Collins. Itâs a new stadium and it will be Senior Day, so they will be emotional. They have very talented young men and itâs a team that has a lot of talent and can rally together," said head coach Matt Wells during a press conference this past week.
Mountain West Football
âUtah State plays at Colorado State in a matchup to discover if any Mountain West team can force Matt Wells to play his starters in the fourth quarter. Utah State has a 9-1 record and was able to climb all the way up to #14 in our College Football Today FBS Top 25, as Colorado State has not faired well this season and has had some miserable performances as of late. With Utah State putting up nearly 500 yards of offense per game and Colorado State averaging 413.7 yards per contest, this game should be a classic wild west shootout between these Mountain West competitors. The Rams just were beaten badly last weekend by Nevada 49-10 and lacked the flashes of offensive magic we have seen all season. I attribute most of Colorado State's prolific passing numbers to the fact that they have been playing from behind most of the season. They lacked a powerful running game and had arguably one of the worst defenses in all of College Football. After watching them play against the Colorado Buffaloes in the Rocky Mountain Showdown, I realized that the Rams simply did not have the personnel to match up and Coach Bobo's recruiting classes, featuring more than 50 3-star recruits, simply were recruited by Stars, rather then play on the field. Below are the statistics for Utah State and Colorado State which were provided via HeroSports.com.
Colorado State Football
"Up to this point, Boboâs way has been the SEC way. Recruit talent from the Deep South, bring them to Fort Collins and create Georgia West. A few of his players have excelled. Most have not." - Coloradoan Matt Knudson
Colorado State has been able to get recruit well in South Georgia, which is a area I am very familiar with, as our Top 300 is loaded with South Georgia talent. But as we have stated before, most of these regions of America are the only players with stars by their names, as they are in very well known recruiting regions. That being said, Colorado State has a truly special weapon for the next level in wideout Preston Williams, and he will be added to our NFL Draft wide receiver prospects after we watch him in live against Utah State. Preston currently has 78 receptions for 1020 yards (13.1avg) and 9 touchdowns on the season. He will be in the running for the prestigious Biletnikoff Award and should be one of the top wide receivers picked in the NFL Draft.

We have been screaming for Utah State to be in the everyones NCAA Football Top 25 since week 6 in the college football season. Here is the case that is posted on the front page of our website against ESPN College Football's Kirk Herbstreit. As Tim Tebow was way off on Michigan and Notre Dame, "Herby" was dead wrong about Coach Matt Wells and the Utah State Aggies!

NFL Draft 2019 Prospects
College Football Today will be live at the Utah State vs Colorado State match-up at beautiful Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins,Colorado. This is the home location of College Football Today and we will be scouting many players from both sides of the football for our 2019 NFL Draft boards. Jordan Love is a amazing looking up and coming prospect at the Quarterback position for Coach Wells and he also has other dynamic offensive weapons like the two headed monster of Darwin Thompson and Gerold Bright, who have combined for 26 touchdowns in total on the season for the Aggies. The Aggies have had a very impressive kicking game this year and Dominik Eberle has amassed 114 total points on the season and should be in contention for the Lou Groza Award. It is going to be a fun day starting tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. MT and we look forward to watching the greatness that is Coach Matt Wells and the Utah State Aggies, as they take on the Colorado State Rams!
