SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah State football team landed in the bottom tier of teams in the Mountain West’s predicted order of finish for the upcoming 2021 season.

The predictions were unveiled at the Mountain West’s annual Media Day event on Wednesday, July 21.

The Aggies received 47 points, which was the third-lowest amount by any Mountain West program.

Here is the conference’s predicted order of finish for the 2021 campaign:
