Utah State remains in top 20

The first week of college basketball is in the books and there were not too many surprises that happened to shake up the rankings. The Champions Classic shuffled the top five since the top four teams played but that is about it.

Utah State is 2-0 after a fairly close win over Montana State and then the Aggies demolished in-state foe Weber State 89-34. Those results kept the Aggies at No. 17 in the latest rankings. The next chance for Utah State to make a move is when they take on No. 23 LSU but that game is not until Nov. 22 in a neutral site game in Jamaica.

San Diego State is getting som consideration by earning two points after wins vs. Texas Southern and a quality win on the road to defeat BYU, 76-71.

The Aztecs have just one game this week against Grand Canyon but they have struggled this year and are 0-2 with losses to Illinois and Davidson. So, a win over GCU may not have that big of an impact in the rankings.
