Aggies hope to put icing on already historic regular season

LOGAN — The milestones are already numerous.

Its first national ranking since 1978. Its best start to any season since 1961. And with a win today over Idaho, its first outright conference championship since 1936.

For further measure, the program has never even seen 10 victories in a season before. But that would change with a defeat of the Vandals.

It’s been a good fall for Utah State football.

Here’s another: With 24 victories, the third-winningest senior class in Aggie history will conclude their collegiate careers this afternoon in Romney Stadium.

USU (9-2, 5-0 WAC) and Idaho (1-10, 1-4) kickoff at 1 p.m. — and just minutes beforehand, 18 players will be honored on the field.

“I don’t want to think much about it,” said cornerback Willie Davis, a De Anza (Cupertino, Calif.) College transfer. “It’s only been a couple of years for me but seems like a long time. It will hit me walking out, when we’re sole champions. It will be memorable. I’d always dreamed of thousands of fans as a kid — and these are probably the best fans in my life.”
