The No. 22 Utah State Aggies meet the Toledo Rockets Saturday afternoon in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.
The 10-2 Aggies ended their regular season with a six game win streak, including 45-9 blowout victory over Idaho on Nov. 24.
Utah State’s eighth ranked defense forced four turnovers, with a 59-yard interception return by Will Davis that gave the Aggies a 21-0 second quarter lead.
Sophomore quarterback Chuckie Keeton went 17-for-25 for 133 yards with two touchdowns and two picks. For the season Keaton has 27 touchdowns to nine interceptions this year, and has thrown for at least two scores during the Aggies win streak.
Toledo, however, may not have their best man under center Saturday. Junior quarterback Terrance Owens’ status is uncertain due to an ankle injury.
Owen’s missed the Rockets regular season finale with an ankle injury, but they still captured a 35-23 win over Akron on Nov. 20.
Back up Austin Dantin tossed five touchdowns, including three in the second quarter, and wide receiver Alonzo Russell had nine receptions for 139 yards and two touchdowns.
Toledo also dealt with an injury to top running back David Fluellen, who’s gained 1,460 yards this season. Fluellen is expected to return against Utah State.
The game kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and will be broadcast by ESPN, or if you can’t get to a television, you can watch their live stream online at Watch ESPN here, by providing your cable subscription info.
