    We all know that Utah is afraid to play in the Spectrum, but that is another story.

    The home team in this series always wins. The cougs won last time in Salt Lake, hope it is the Aggies turn tonight. It will be a hard fought close game. Go Big Blue!!!

    By implication, it's unfortunate that the Aggies depend on playing at home if they want to win. One might as well say that it is unfortunate the NCAA is afraid to hold any USU tournament play in Logan. A neutral site of the Energy Solutions Arena is the better option.

    @earthquakejake - "It's unfortunate that Coach Rose is afraid to play the Aggies in Logan."

    What? If memory serves me, 2011 was in Logan. 2012 in Provo. And 2013 in SLC. I like the home, home and SLC rotation.

    Silly, uninformed comment.

    BYU and Utah State have agreed to a home-home-neutral schedule - by definition, that means that Coach Rose no more afraid of playing in Logan, than Coach Morrill is afraid of playing outside the friendly confines of the Spectrum.

    Umm, I wasn't aware that Rose is afraid to play the Aggies in Logan! Whatever gave you that conclusion? The article didn't say anything of that sort! May the better team win though!

    Go Cougars! And good luck to the Aggies after tonight!

    The season is just getting started, and this is already our 5th game against a very good team. So far, we are 2-2 against good teams, and we had our chances to win against ISU and Wichita St. The Cougs are playing better than I thought they would with a very young team with no seniors.

    On paper, this game against the Aggies looks pretty evenly matched. Hopefully, Haws can get back on track. This one is for the state championship. Go Cougs!

    Cougars face an uphill battle against a very good USU team.

    I like Rose, but Morrill is a bit better at developing his talent and preparing them for games. The USU guard line and Shaw will give BYU all that it wants.

    Mika is key to keeping BYU in this game. If he is on the bench, BYU loses ground.

    BYU has a deeper team and that may allow them to fend off USU . . . but I predict an Aggie win!

    I hope Haws can show up in a big game, and break the cycle of many "great" BYU players of late, who take the day off when the competition gets tough...just sayn'.
