With Effort Unquestioned, Technique & Execution Key To Utah State Improvement
Oct 16, 2023, 10:35 AM
LOGAN, Utah – Utah State gave itself a chance to beat Fresno State over the weekend, but untimely penalties and poor technique cost the Aggies when it mattered most.
“We’re getting better every week,” Anderson said. “(We) played our most complete game, just didn’t make the plays needed to finish. We just gotta keep fighting.”

“They’re not stupid, egregious penalties, but they’re still flags and they cost you big plays. We’ve got to be more disciplined… We’re getting close but there’s way too many penalties and mistakes in critical situations to be the type of team we want to be.”
Poor technique was a contributing factor to the Aggies penalty woes, including a hands-to-the-face call that wiped away a Rahsul Faison touchdown.
“It felt like we left 100 yards and 14 points on the field the other night. I think we’re getting better all the time but we’re still making way too many mistakes to be as efficient and explosive as we need to be. If we eliminate mistakes, I think we’re a problem for anybody.”
