Why Utah State Will Win

The Aggies return home after a lengthy road trip (haven’t played in Logan since Nov. 15), hoping to knock off in-state rival BYU. USU guard Koby McEwen is back and appears healthy after dealing with an ankle injury, and should be placed in the starting five to start the game. BYU, despite losing one of its top players early in the season, has played well up to this point. The Cougars are 5-2 and its two losses are against top 75 KenPom teams in UT Arlington and Alabama. Hopefully for Utah State, the Spectrum will have a sizable crowd and the Aggies can notch the rivalry victory.

KenPom Line

Utah State +1, o/u: 147

Score Prediction

Utah State 75, BYU 70
