Sophomore quarterback Chuckie Keeton is quickly becoming the face of Utah State's football program.
For his performance against Utah last Friday night, 302 yards of total offense, two touchdown passes, Keeton was named the offensive player of the week for the Western Athletic Conference.
The awards don't stop there for the Aggies, in the wake of that stunning 27-20 win over the Utes.
Punter Tyler Bennett was named the special teams player of the week. His performance, pinning Utah on multiple occasions deep in their own territory, went a long way towards forcing the Utes to go on long drives in order to score their points.
Bojay Filimoeatu was also recognized for his breakout performance at linebacker, a career-high 12 tackles and a sack.
It says something about Keeton and his potential that many don't think his performance against Utah was the best ever. But his ability to be a dual threat on each play gives USU hope going in to Wisconsin.
