The Aggies have lost every game by 29 or more points so far this year, and that probably won’t change this week. Utah State is averaging less than 10 points per game, and just barely eclipses 200 yards of total offense on average. The defense is rough too, allowing an average of 520 yards and 38 points so far in 2020. There really aren’t a ton of positives for the Aggies this season, and it’s how you end up at 115th in SP+.
Fresno State’s defense hasn’t been all that great either, allowing over 200 yards passing and rushing on average. But the difference is that the Bulldogs can score. The team averages 32 points per game, while only giving up 26. That number should go way down this week after facing the Aggies too. Look for running back Ronnie Rivers to have a massive day against a Utah State defense that struggles to stop the run even more than the pass.
