Toledo Rockets: Things were looking up for the Rockets (9-3 straight-up, 7-5 against the spread) when they reeled off an eighth straight win and were on the verge of cracking the polls at the end of October. But Toledo dropped its next two games to Ball State and Northern Illinois to finish third in the MAC West. The Rockets ended the campaign on a winning note with a 35-23 win over Akron despite missing their two offensive stars, quarterback Terrance Owens and tailback David Fluellen. Owens passed for more than 2,600 yards and 14 touchdowns while ranking second on the team with 381 yards rushing, and Fluellen was eighth in the country, averaging nearly 133 yards per game on the ground. The good news is both are listed as probable for the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (click to check updated college football injury report). The Rockets finished the season with five consecutive "under" results and were 8-3 to the low side of totals on the year.
Utah State Aggies: One of the most profitable teams to follow this season, the Aggies (10-2 SU, 10-1-1 ATS) netted nearly nine units of profit for their backers while also putting money in the pockets of "under" bettors with an 8-3 record. Utah State ended a perfect campaign in the WAC with a 45-9 trouncing of Idaho in the regular-season finale, the only point spread loss for the Aggies with the final margin just missing the closing 37-point spread. The only two SU defeats came on the road and were decided by a total of five points (16-14 at Wisconsin and 6-3 at BYU). Utah State finished eighth in the country, allowing just 15.4 points per game, and ranked 15th in surrendering less than 323 yards per contest. Sophomore QB Chuckie Keeton directed a well-balanced offense with more than 3,100 yards through the air and a 27:9 TD/INT ratio. His 527 yards on the ground were second on the team to Kerwynn Williams' 1,277.
