Aggies win 18th straight

The numbers keep getting more impressive for the Utah State Aggies.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, here’s a look at a few facts, figures and other tidbits following USU’s 60-52 nailbiter over Louisiana Tech.

At 23-1, Utah State has the most wins and best winning percentage in the country — tied with No. 2 Oklahoma.

The 31 consecutive home victories is tied for the longest such streak in school history.

Dating back to last season, the Aggies have won 15 consecutive WAC regular season games.

The 15 turnovers committed by the Aggies is only the fourth time USU has had more turnovers than assists — 14 on Saturday.

When allowed fewer than 60 points, USU has won 56 games in a row.

When leading at the half, USU is 17-0 this season and a whopping 199-21 over the past 10 years.

The 23 wins this year gives Utah State that many wins for the 10th season in a row. Only Gonzaga and Kansas have a chance of matching that mark this season.

With five games left to play and a four-game lead in the WAC standings, USU can lock up the conference regular season title with a win in Boise next Saturday.
