The UConn Huskies travel to Utah as they face the Utah State Aggies at Maverik Stadium in Logan, UT.

The first game is always tough for the college teams as they are still finalizing their rosters and depth pieces as they prepare to play against an opponent early in the season.

If last season is any indication as to the difference between these two teams, then this contest could be a landslide. The Huskies finished last year with a 1-11 record, while the Aggies finished with a stellar 11-3 record.

In college football, Week 0 gives these teams a chance to wipe the slate clean and attempt to start their respective seasons off with a win.

UConn Huskies vs. Utah State Aggies Preview

The UConn Huskies will like to hit the reset button after a disappointing season in 2021. They went 1-11 and seemingly got blown out in their final four games to finish last season. The benefit of starting this season is that they can reset and try to get a win.

They will lean heavily on their starting running back, Nathan Carter, who ran for 578 yards and two touchdowns last season.

With a new starting quarterback behind center, the Huskies will look to build more positives than they had during the 2021 season.

Utah State had a very successful season in 2021. They went 11-3 overall, which was capped off with a win in the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl as they beat Oregon State.

They have plenty of returners coming back who were impact players for the Aggies last season.

Starting quarterback Logan Bonner is back leading this team as he enters his senior year.

Last season, Bonner passed for 3,628 yards and tallied 36 touchdowns to his name. If he can repeat his success from last season while improving his ball management skills, the Aggies will have another successful season in 2022.

UConn vs. Utah State Picks

Overall this is a major David vs. Goliath scenario between UConn and Utah State. Two teams that, at the end of the 2021 season, were trending in opposite directions.

The odds show the Aggies as the heavy favorite, and for a good reason. They have a stellar returning quarterback and have all the momentum to start off the 2022 campaign with a bang.

With the deeper roster and many returners, the Utah State Aggies are the pick to make in this Week 0 contest. They will cover the 28-point spread to open up the 2022 college football season.

Final Score: Utah State 49 - UConn 14

Extra Points

1. Utah State averaged 32.6 points per game in 2021.

2. The Aggie scored a total of 456 points during the 14 games last season.

3. UConn had a turnover ratio of -8 during the 2021 season.
