Exploit BYU's Cornerback Weakness
The biggest defensive weakness for the Cougars has been their corners. With the arm that Chuckie Keeton has, USU should take advantage of this. Let the wideouts run deep routes—use speed to beat BYU.
If the Aggie offensive line can buy Keeton time, they shouldn't have a huge problem.
Don't Let Taysom Hill Run
I'm sure Utah State's defense has seen plenty of film of Taysom Hill shredding defenses with his legs, and they better be prepared. The crafty quarterback can fill more highlight reels on the ground than through the air, and USU should be ready to stop him.
Keep an Eye on Cody Hoffman
After sitting out last week, BYU's standout receiver Cody Hoffman is set to play on Friday. Without a doubt, Taysom Hill will be looking in his direction a lot. Utah State will need to prevent any big-yardage plays to Hoffman, along with the other receivers.
