The number one defense of Utah State went head to head with the number one offense of Boise State in the Mountain West division title game. It had all the makings of an exciting match up, but the scoreboard said otherwise. The Aggies lost big 50-19, and watched their hopes of being Mountain West champions go down the drain.
“Every loss rips your guts out and as a coach, this one will stick with me for a long time,” Utah State head coach Matt Wells said after the loss. “Just to get this close and then to not be in it…”
“It’s disappointing. We got to play in it last year. We lost in it,” USU senior safety Frankie Sutera said. “This year we had the chance to get there and we just didn’t make it happen and it’s really disappointing.”
“It hurts. If it was a close game it wouldn’t hurt as bad but they just blew us out and they just beat us physically,” USU freshman quarterback Kent Myers said. “There was a lot of stuff that we left out there and we didn’t get it done.”
“Stand here and take it like a man and give them the credit. We didn’t play our best and it wasn’t good enough,” Wells said.
Boise State, who improves to 10-2 on the season and 7-1 in Mountain West play, will host Fresno State in the Sports Authority Mountain West Championship game on Saturday, December 6th at 8 p.m. Utah State is now 9-4 overall and finished 6-2 in the Mountain West.
