STOCKTON, Calif. - Christian Maraker scored five of his team-high 19 points in the second overtime to help Pacific win its 19th straight Big West game, 73-66 over Utah State on Thursday night.
David Doubley scored six of his 18 points in second extra period for the Tigers (11-2. 6-0).
Pacific finally took control after Jaycee Carroll gave Utah State its final lead at 60-58 with two free throws to begin the second overtime. The game had five lead changes after regulation.
Defending Big West champion Pacific hasn't lost a conference game since falling at Utah State 66-51 on Jan. 15, 2004. Both Pacific and Utah State were 17-1 in league play last season.
Guillaume Yango scored 14 points for Pacific and Marko Mihailovic had 11 points.
The lead changed hands three times in the first overtime before Harris' three-point play with 19 seconds left sent the game into a second extra period tied at 58.
The overtimes appeared unlikely after Pacific turned a 25-21 halftime deficit into a 41-31 lead with 9:55 remaining in the second half.
But Nelson scored 13 points the rest of the way to spark the methodical comeback that got the Aggies even at the end of regulation.
Nelson stepped to the line with seven seconds remaining and calmly sank two free throws to send the game into overtime tied at 48. Yango, Pacific's top inside threat, fouled out on the play.
