LOGAN, Utah - Utah State fans in the Wasatch Front are invited to meet new Aggie football head coach Gary Andersen and members of his staff on Thursday, Feb. 19 from 6-8 p.m., at the Radisson Hotel Salt Lake City Airport, at 2177 West North Temple. The event costs $5 per person and light hors devourers will be served.

The event is sponsored by The Woodbury Corporation.
Fans can RSVP to the USU Athletics Office at 435-797-1850.
Another topic of discussion Thursday will be Utah State's non-conference schedule, which was released last week, as the Aggies' 2009 season-opener and the debut of the Gary Andersen era is against the Utah Utes on Thursday, Sept. 3.
USU's other non-conference games include at Texas A&M on Saturday, Sept. 19, hosting Southern Utah on Saturday, Sept. 26 and at BYU on Friday, Oct. 2.
USU is expecting the release of the Western Athletics Conference schedule in early March.
Andersen's Aggie team returns 47 letterwinners (24 offense, 20 defense and three special teams) from last season's 3-9 overall and 3-5 WAC record squad. It marked the first time since 2005 that the Aggies had three wins in a season and USU won three WAC games in a season for the first time in the Aggies' four seasons in the league. It is also the first time since 2003 that USU won three conference games and just the third time in the 2000's.
