What to Know

We've got another exciting Mountain West matchup on schedule as the Utah State Aggies and the Colo. State Rams are set to tip at 5:30 p.m. ET on February 17th at Moby Arena. Utah State will be strutting in after a win while the Rams will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Wyoming typically has all the answers at home, but on Wednesday Utah State proved too difficult a challenge. They walked away with an 84-76 win over the Cowboys. The victory made it back-to-back wins for Utah State.

Utah State can attribute much of their success to Darius Brown II, who scored 24 points along with eight rebounds and five assists. As a matter of fact, that's the most points Brown II has scored all season. Josh Uduje was another key contributor, scoring 20 points.

Meanwhile, Colo. State unfortunately witnessed the end of their four-game winning streak on Tuesday. They took a hard 71-55 fall against the Aztecs. The result shouldn't come as a shock considering that's the fewest points Colo. State has scored all season.

Even though the team lost, they still had their share of impressive performances. One of the best came from Patrick Cartier, who scored 12 points. He didn't help Colo. State's cause all that much against the Spartans last Friday but the same can't be said for this match.

Perhaps unsurprisingly given the score, Colo. State struggled to get the ball back on offense and finished the game with only four offensive rebounds. They were demolished by their opponents in that department as San Diego State pulled down 14 offensive rebounds.

The Aggies' win bumped their record up to 21-4. As for the Rams, their defeat dropped their record down to 19-6.

Fans should be in for an exciting game on Saturday as the pair are among the highest scoring teams in the league right now. Utah State hasn't had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 81.1 points per game. However, it's not like Colo. State struggles in that department as they've been averaging 78 points per game. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run the score up higher.

Utah State is hoping to beat the odds on Saturday, as the experts think they're headed for a loss. For those looking to play the spread, keep Utah State's opponent in mind: they have a solid 6-2 record against the spread vs the Rams over their last eight matchups.
