LOGAN, UT – After a whirlwind first season leading the Utah State Aggies, Blake Anderson is happy with where the program sits heading into year two.

Utah State opened their fall camp on Friday, July 29 in preparation for their season opener against Connecticut on Saturday, August 27 at Maverik Stadium in Logan.

“It honestly seems like yesterday we were in LA finishing a bowl game and a championship weekend. It just it really flew by.”

Coming off of that 24-13 win over Oregon State way back in December, Anderson has been happy with the offseason work put in by his team.

“I think our guys have had a really really good summer and prepared well. Just the energy in the building already; guys rolling in has been has been nothing but positive. But the expectations are through the roof both for the fan base and within the building. We’ll get to work and hopefully see what we can we can create over the next month.

With quarterback Logan Bonner, running back Calvin Tyler Jr. and wide receiver Justin McGriff returning to lead the offense, Anderson wants to make sure the Aggies are at their best late in games.

“We’re gonna take the same approach we took a year ago be to be the best we can be every day. One degree better every day. Control what we can control, high work level, high intensity, be in the best shape we possibly can be. We’ll stick to our formula and our approach. I think these kids know that if they will do that well, it gives us a chance to be successful every week.”

All fall practices will be closed to the public. Anderson is planning on hosting two scrimmages that fans will be invited to attend. The scrimmages will be held on Saturday, August 6 at 11 a.m. (MST) and Saturday, Aug. 13, at noon. Both scrimmages will be held on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium.
