It’s the Battle of the Brothers, hardwood style tonight at the Vivint SmartHome Arena! Utah and Utah State renew the series for the first time since 2010. A lot has changed in that time, namely, Utah wasn’t in the Pac-12, and USU wasn’t in the Mountain West. Coach K wasn’t yet the coach, as we were in the final year of Jim Boylen, and Utah State got the best of the Utes. That last part is hopefully the next thing to change, as Utah is now a stabilized program, albeit a bit young right now. Meanwhile, USU has destabilized a bit since Stew Morrill has moved on, and the Aggies have had their struggles in recent years.
I do expect a very competitive game between these two, as USU no doubt wants to get the win versus the in state, Power-5 program team. It should be fun, and join us here while it happens!
