San Diego State meets an old rival in Utah at the Staples Center. The last time San Diego State and Utah faced off was in 2015 on the backend of a home-and-home.
The rivalry in his recent history bends towards the Aztecs.
San Diego State’s all-time record against Utah is 19-54 since 1975. Eleven wins come during the Steve Fisher era of San Diego State, and 6 wins since 2009.
 
On the line for the Aztecs is another quad 2 opponent to build their tournament resume. Utah is coming off an upset against number 6 AP-ranked Kentucky. Larry Krystkowiak is getting his team turned up at the right time as they roll into Pac-12 play.
 
The best metric for the Aztecs: win.
 
The pre-season hope was to breakeven at the Las Vegas Invitational and take a winnable game against Utah on a neutral.
Now a hungry Aztecs team that looks to hold territory in the undefeated Reddit map circulated during every win and loss by any remaining undefeated team.
The Aztecs are likely to lean on Malachi Flynn against the Utes. Flynn has shown up in big moments this season and has a proven record against the Utes. In his last season as a Washington State Cougar, he recorded a 19-point game and a 20-point game. 
 
Defensively, the Aztecs have to keep an eye on Utah’s leading scorer Timmy Allen. Allen’s been averaging 21 points per game and looks forward to playing ball in Southern California, close enough to his hometown of Oak Park.
