SOURCE: Utah State is hiring former Western Kentucky coach Mike Sanford as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Sanford spent the past two seasons at WKU, and also has been an offensive coordinator at both Notre Dame and Boise State. Still only 36, Sanford re-enters the Mountain West, where he has played and coached at Boise State. He'll take over a Utah State offense that thrived under David Yost, and has a dynamic quarterback in redshirt sophomore Jordan Love. A strong hire here by Gary Andersen as Sanford had other options.

Utah State has had its last two coaches leave for Power 5 jobs (Gary Andersen and Matt Wells), so the job is better than it used to be. Andersen, now Utah's associate head coach/D-line coach, could return to Logan, where he still keeps his primary home. Other candidates include Weber State coach Jay Hill, Utah defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley and BYU assistant head coach Ed Lamb. One outside-the-box option is Hawaii coach Nick Rolovich. Former Utah State defensive coordinators Dave Aranda (LSU) and Todd Orlando (Texas) both would need to take pay cuts to return.

Utah State has scored 42 or more points in every game during its five-game win streak and has at least 31 points in all six games this season. Before this stretch, the Aggies never had more than three consecutive games of 40-plus points. Utah State is 5-1 for the first time since 1978

Remember when Utah State gave Michigan State a major scare in Week 1? It wasn't a fluke. Matt Wells' team is on a roll, about to finish off a dominant road win over recently ranked BYU. The offense is surging behind quarterback Jordan Love. Utah State is looking more like a threat in the Mountain West. Circle Nov. 3 as Utah State visits another surprise team, 5-1 Hawaii.
