It will be a big Thursday night basketball game for the New Mexico State Aggies, when they host the Utah State Aggies at 7 p.m.
Both of these teams figure to challenge for a league title — Nevada, NMSU and Utah State all have the look of top-four teams in the conference. And if the Aggies are serious about competing for the WAC title, I don’t think they can afford to lose this game.
Utah State is a well-coached team and will be ready after losing at home to Nevada last week.
But I like NMSU at home in this one. Could be a different story in Logan, but in Las Cruces I’ll take the home Aggies.
