Rivals.com Names USU's Keeton Freshman of the Week Viewed 2,368 timesBy: Drew Rand

Utah State football player Chuckie Keeton has been named the Rivals.com National Freshman of the Week due to his stellar debut in Saturday's game.
Keeton, a local of Houston, Texas, was 21-of-30 passing for 213 yards and added two rushing TD's during 33 rushing yards in his Aggie debut in USU's hard-fought 42-38 loss at defending national champion No. 23/19 Auburn Saturday. Keeton is believed to be the very first Aggie freshman to start a USU season-opener in mine or even my parents memory. Keeton is also the first Aggie freshman to begin an opening game at QB since Riley Nelson in 2006.
"Chuckie is a special player," USU head coach Gary Andersen said as part of his post-game interview. "I promise you no one is hurt more, even though he has been with us for a short period of time. We are in very good hands at the quarterback position. ... I love Chuckie Keeton. I have loved Chuckie Keeton since I walked into his living room."
The Aggies host in-state foe Weber State in USU's home opener on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. at Merlin Olsen Field at Romney Stadium. Saturday marks the first time that USU and WSU have met since 2001, and Utah State leads the series, 11-1. The Aggie-Wildcat match-up will have special meaning for Andersen, that happens to be facing his mentor, Weber State head coach Ron McBride.
