LOGAN, Utah - Utah State Athletics will be holding an Aggie Football Celebration on Saturday, Jan. 26 on the concourse of the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum to celebrate the most successful football season in school history. The event will be from 6-7 p.m., prior to USU's men's basketball game against Louisiana Tech.
During the Aggie Football Celebration, members of the 2012 Western Athletic Conference and Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Championship team will be on hand to sign autographs. Both the 2012 WAC Championship trophy and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl trophy will be on display.
Autographs will take place on the south end of the concourse and fans must have a ticket to the men's basketball game to attend the Aggie Football Celebration.
Tickets for Utah State men's basketball games are $17 for non-priority seating and $19 for priority seating. A limited number of youth tickets (14 years and younger) will also be available for the Jan. 26 game for $12, while supplies last.
Utah State will also recognize the 2012 Aggie Football team at halftime of the USU vs. LTU men's basketball game and a video highlighting the season will be shown prior to the introduction.
Utah State had its most successful season in school history in 2012 as it went 11-2 and set school records for wins (11) and home wins (6), while recording just its second bowl win in school history with a 41-15 victory against Toledo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. USU also won its first outright conference championship since 1936 and just its third in school history joining the 1921 and 1936 teams that both won Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference titles.
Nationally, Utah State was one of just 19 teams to finish the 2012 season with 11 or more wins and USU was one of just four teams across the country who did not lose a league game joining Ohio State (8-0) from the Big Ten and Kent State (8-0) and Northern Illinois (8-0) from the Mid-American Conference.
Utah State ended the 2012 season nationally ranked for just the third time in school history as it finished the year ranked 16th in the Associated Press poll, 17th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' poll and 22nd in the Bowl Championship Series standings.
Utah State also finished the 2012 season winning its final seven games, which is tied for the fourth-longest active winning streak in the nation and tied for the third-longest winning streak in school history.
