FRISCO, Texas – Utah State head coach Gary Andersen said that his team plans to “fight for each other” in the Aggies’ final game of the 2019 season at the Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl.

Andersen spoke about his team’s final preparations on Thursday, December 19, the day before the Aggies face the Kent State Golden Flashes.

The USU head coach highlighted his team’s final ride together as motivation for the Frisco Bowl. Andersen said that after the matchup with the Golden Flashes is over, everyone will go their separate ways and the 2019 version of the Aggies will be no more.

Utah State seniors will play their final collegiate game as their NCAA eligibility expires.

Others like junior quarterback Jordan Love will explore other opportunities outside of college football. Love announced his intentions to enter the 2020 NFL Draft on December 10.

“Jordan and his family have been tremendous throughout this process, and he is making this announcement now so it’s not a distraction to the team and his teammates leading up to the bowl game,” said Utah State head coach Gary Andersen. “Jordan has been a great student-athlete and is a tremendous teammate, and we are excited for his future in the NFL.”

Andersen said that the Frisco Bowl experience has been “first-class” and the game is a “tremendous opportunity” for his team.

The Aggies finished the 2019 regular season with a 7-5 record. They were 6-2 in Mountain West Conference play which was third place in the Mountain division.

Utah State will play Kent State on December 20 at 5:30 p.m. (MDT). The game will be televised on ESPN2.
