All practices of the preseason are open to the public. Fans are encouraged to stay in the stands when the team is practicing on Merlin Olsen Field at Romney Stadium and in the bleachers at the practice field. All open practices are subject to change.

USU’s preseason concludes with a scrimmage on Saturday at noon as part of Utah State Aggie Football Family Fun Day, sponsored by Macey’s Foods. The event provides fans a chance to meet USU football players and coaches, participate in games and activities, and purchase and pick up season tickets. Activities sponsored by Macey’s Foods will begin on the South Concourse of Romney Stadium.

Season tickets, as well as two-game packages, will be available for purchase at the Family Fun Day at the Romney Stadium box office, located on the south end of the stadium.

After its season opener at Auburn on Sept. 3, Utah State’s home opener is on Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. (MT), taking on in-state foe Weber State, marking the first time that USU and WSU have squared off since 2001; Utah State leads the all-time series, 11-1. The Aggie-Wildcat matchup will have special meaning for head coach Andersen, who will be facing his mentor, Weber State head coach Ron McBride. Andersen played for McBride at Utah in 1985-86.

For USU football ticket information, contact the USU Ticket Office at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum, or call 888-USTATE-1 or 435-797-0305.
