The Aggies defense was on the ropes for a while against BYU and Boise State, but the last two weeks have shown progress, to say the least.
Utah State smushed New Mexico and Hawaii, shutting them down to only 10 points in each game. The front seven has been a huge part of that, shutting down the run and hitting opposing quarterbacks. Kyler Fackrell was just named Mountain West defender of the week.
Linebacker Jake Doughty, one of the leading tacklers in the nation, took some time to talk about what the Aggies have tightened up on to finish Mountain West play strong.
