Considering all they have in common, it makes sense that Utah State coach Gary Andersen and San Diego State coach Brady Hoke have similar programs. We have a lot of the same beliefs, quite frankly,” Andersen said, “which makes it very easy for us to be able to have a relationship. Hoke and Andersen have taken nearly parallel paths to get to Saturday’s Mountain West Conference game at Maverik Stadium, which will be the Aggies' home opener.
This week doesn’t get any easier as the Aggies host a San Diego State team that has just as good as a defense as Boise State. Location: Logan, Utah (Maverick Stadium) Line: San Diego State (-7.5) Date/Time: Saturday, October 31st; 9:30 EST Television: CBS Sports Network Head-to-Head: San Diego State leads the series 12-2. The Aggies first win against the Aztecs came in 1967 in San Diego, 31-25.
There is always a lot at stake when those two play and we will see that intensity on the field. Currently, UNLV has the Fremont Cannon in Rebel Red sitting in the middle of the weight room and Arroyo wants to keep it that way. There are still multiple players who were expected to be a crucial part of this UNLV team that are not listed on the depth chart.
