LOGAN, Utah - Utah State finished the 2012-13 academic year third in the Western Athletic Conference Commissioner's Cup standings, which is its highest finish in its eight years in the league.
Utah State just completed its eighth and final season in the WAC as it joined the league in July, 2005. USU officially joins the Mountain West on July 1, 2013.
Utah State finished fourth in the WAC Commissioner's Cup standings in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2012 to go along with a fifth-place finish in 2007 and 2010, and a sixth-place finish in 2008.
Highlighting Utah State's 2012-13 academic year was its football, soccer and volleyball programs, winning WAC titles in each sport. USU also had second-place team finishes in men's cross country, women's basketball and men's outdoor track, while men's indoor track and women's cross country both finished third.
Utah State's soccer program also won its second-straight WAC Tournament championship during the 2012-13 academic year and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in as many seasons.
UTSA won the WAC's Commissioner's Cup in 2013 with 90.00 points, followed by Idaho (86.50), Utah State (82.00), New Mexico State (80.75), Texas State (79.50), UT Arlington (76.25), San Jose State (67.75), Denver (64.50), Louisiana Tech (57.25) and Seattle (45.00).
The WAC awards its Commissioner's Cup to the school that performs the best in each of the conference's 19 men and women's championships. Points are awarded in order of finish, equal to the number of teams that participate in each sport, and are averaged between a team's regular-season finish (if applicable) and its WAC championship finish. Teams that do not qualify for a postseason tournament due to a smaller field receive points equal to their regular-season finish. Ties are not broken but instead are averaged between the tied teams. Affiliate members are not eligible for the Commissioner's Cup, but their standings are still used for determining points.
