What to Know

After four games on the road, Utah State is heading back home. They will take on the UC Irvine Anteaters at 9:00 p.m. ET on Saturday. Utah State might want some stickum for this matchup since the team gave up 13 turnovers on Tuesday.

Last Tuesday, the Aggies earned a 81-76 win over the Billikens.

Among those leading the charge was Great Osobor, who dropped a double-double on 24 points and 13 rebounds. Isaac Johnson was another key contributor, scoring 16 points.

Meanwhile, UC Irvine unfortunately witnessed the end of their six-game winning streak on Wednesday. They took a 66-62 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Dukes.

Their wins bumped the Aggies to 6-1 and the Billikens to 5-3.

While only Utah State took care of their fans the last time they played, neither team managed to cover. Looking ahead, Utah State is the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by six points. UC Irvine might be worth a quick bet since they've covered the spread the last four times they've played.
