But if you want drama, the Utah State Aggies aren’t where to look. They had one of the smoothest-running camps that anyone can remember, leaving them in a great frame of mind as they had into game week.

For the Utah State Aggies, their timing for the showdown with the Tennessee Vols couldn’t be better. Back in 2008 when the game was scheduled, the Vols were coming of a 10-4 run in 2007 that ended with a win over Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl.
