5 • Will Chuckie Keeton be the best college quarterback in the state?

First, it has to be determined whether the sophomore is the best quarterback at Utah State. He and Adam Kennedy have repeatedly beaten each other over the head with socket wrenches in fall camp. Gary Andersen said both Keeton and Kennedy will play — some. But Keeton is the right QB to run the Aggies’ new offense, which Andersen wants to be explosive, balanced and efficient.

Last season, USU was more about pounding the ball and bubble screens. Now, the ball will find its way all over creation. "An area where we’ve improved," Andersen said, "is in pass protection. We’re a lot better there."

So, there’s that.

"Our offense will be strong," said Keeton. "It’s going to be good, high tempo and with big weapons. We’ll make big plays. My confidence level is better than it was last year. It’s completely different."

If Keeton stays on the field, the Chuckster will have a huge year.
