Currently, in my opinion Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton is still one of the best players in the nation despite, the fact that the Aggies fell short to rival Utah in the “Battle of Brothers” 30-26. After last night, there was no doubt in my mind that Keeton was the best player on the field and will get Utah State back on track as they head to Air Force next week. Last night Keeton’s stats were outstanding (31/40, 341 YDS, 2 TD; 15 rushes, 85 YDS, 1 TD) however it is the youngsters’ poise, toughness and accuracy that really got my attention. Above he picks up a long first down after losing his shoe.
Keeton made a name for himself last year as he guided an under the radar Utah State program to an 11-2 record and a 41-15 victory over Toledo in The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.
