Wyoming’s offense versus Utah State’s defense.
Those are the strengths of the two teams when both play at noon Saturday at Romney Stadium in Logan, Utah.
Utah State (7-4, 6-1) leads the MW in seven defensive categories, and is seventh nationally in scoring defense (17.6 points per game), 10th in third-down conversion defense (31.5 percent) and tied for 12th in total defense (333.4 yards per game).
UW (5-6, 3-4) is 13th in total offense at just under 500 yards of total offense per game.
This is what UW coach Dave Christensen said about the Aggies’ defense Monday during his weekly interview session with the media.
“Most people haven’t had a lot of success that has played them,” he said. “Every single player plays extremely hard the entire play for every single play. They’re very talented players that have great motors. They have a lot of experience. They can get great pressure on the quarterback. They are tight as can be in man coverage. They pressure, they blitz and they get there. They definitely are the best defense we’ve played this year.”
