The Aggies finished the 2022 season with a record of 6-7.
Coming off of a Mountain West championship in 2021, Utah State couldn’t find the same groove last year.
The Aggies finished seventh in the conference but were tied for the third-best record in conference play.
Utah State fell in the middle of the Mountain West pack in a lot of areas. The Aggies were sixth in points per game, sixth in passing yards, sixth in passing yards allowed, sixth in sacks, and sixth in interceptions.
Where they seemed to struggle the most was on defense. USU sat at 11th in points allowed, 11th in yards allowed, 11th in rushing yards allowed, and they were by far the most penalized team in the Mountain West.
Boise State was picked to win the Mountain West in 2023. The Broncos finished with a 10-4 record in 2022 and beat North Texas in the Miami Beach Bowl.
