Utah State (9-2, 5-0 WAC), who is ranked tied for 25th in the nation in this week's Associated Press Poll, is off to its best start to a season since the 1961 team finished the year with a 9-1-1 record and USU's nine wins thus far this year are tied with the 1960 and 1961 USU teams for the most victories in a single season in school history.
Utah State also claimed a share of its first-ever Western Athletic Conference Championship with its win at nationally ranked Louisiana Tech, which is its 11th conference championship in school history and first since the 1997 team shared the Big West Conference title.
With a win in its regular season finale at home against Idaho (1-10, 1-4 WAC) on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 1 p.m., USU will win just its third outright league championship in school history (1921, 1936) and its first since the 1936 team won the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) title.
In all, Utah State has won a school-record 10-straight WAC games dating back to last season and is 14-3 in its last 17 games, which is its best stretch since 1962-64. USU has also won six-straight WAC road games and is 7-2 in its last nine road games dating back to 2011.
At home, Utah State has won seven straight games inside Merlin Olsen Field at Romney Stadium and will be going for its first undefeated home season since the 1982 team posted a 4-0 record.
