Keeton picked apart the defense for one big play after another to make Utah State’s highly rated defense look average. That was the bad news. The good news? The Aggies might not face another quarterback with the talent of Keeton this season. Keeton looked like he is on top of his game, hooking up with JC transfer Hunter Sharp, Braelon Roberts and others in the scrimmage. “It was ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

None, apparently, played very well. “Based on today’s performance, we don’t have a starting quarterback,” said head coach Kyle Whittingham after Utah’s first scrimmage of fall camp.
