Pumped for the game tonight

Tonight’s matchup between BYU and USU obviously is the place to be for this Aggie tonight. It also obviously as high-stakes as some of the matchups during the last five years.

Had you asked me 3 weeks ago, I would have said that BYU would wipe the floor with the Aggies. With Medlin and Reed injured and BYU rolling, I would have said no way.

Then the Dellevadaggar. Then the almost-win vs. LA Tech. Then the 30-point blowout at SJSU. Then losses to USD and USF. Then last weekend’s win vs. NMSU. (If you could follow all that, I’m impressed.)

It may not be high-stakes, but I’m pumped to see tonight’s latest edition in the most competitive in-state basketball rivalry over the last 15 years. To me, this is the basketball equivalent of the BYU-Utah game. Stats don’t lie. Check out the preview I wrote to place this game in context.

I’ll be at the game, cheering USU on to their first win in Provo since 2004. Let’s do this, Aggies.
