Will we see Sanders? He’s backing up Hammond and I didn’t see if Hammond came back after getting injured

Re: AF crushing Bronco QB

I think both are beatable but I won’t be surprised at all if we don’t beat AF. That would honestly be a respectable loss, but nobody putting together rankings would see it that way lol

Re: Early SI Bowl Projections

Almost no research is done into the outlook of G5 teams. All they see at Utah State is “G5 with a coaching change” and they ...
