Game Preview: Cougars-Aggies

Some quick tidbits about tonight's crucial early-season game in Logan...

BYU's averaging 88 points per game and winning games by an average of 27 points. The Cougar defense is going to have to continue their terrific play tonight (averaging 11 steals a game) if they want to leave Logan with a win.

Here's why: The Aggies have won 36 straight games in the Spectrum, and the last time they lost an in-state game at home was 9 years ago when BYU escaped in a close one, 82-73, behind Terrell Lyday's 35 points (USU's won 20 of their last 21 against in-state foes)...and then there's this: the Aggies have won 23 or more games each of the last 10 seasons.

The Cougars are going to have to play extremely well to notch their 6th win.
