The scrimmage was moved from Saturday, to Thursday and now to Wednesday night.

Utah State will line up and go hard for the last time in fall camp in a little more than 24 hours. It will be a final real chance for many players to make a serious impression on the coaching staff.

The Aggies will scrimmage on Saturday, as a part of family fun day, but it will be situational and brief.

"It's going to be important," Gary Andersen said. "We're going to get after it."

The scrimmage will feature roughly 80-100 snaps, and will be the last time Utah State tackles before the season-opener against Southern Utah.

Important positional battles include quarterback, back-up running back, left tackle, defensive end, and right guard. The Aggies will practice lightly on Wednesday morning.

"We just think this is the best time to do this, physically," Andersen said. "I think it will be good for everyone."
