Both Utah State and San Jose State ended the WAC regular season with matching 5-2-1 league records. But since the Spartans defeated the Aggies during the regular season, SJSU earned the top seed in the tournament. The Spartans earned their second-straight WAC title, while the Aggies captured at least a share of the WAC crown for the second time in three seasons.

The Aggies will take on the winner of the match between third-seeded Idaho and sixth-seeded on Friday, Nov. 5 at 12:30 p.m. During the regular season, the Aggies defeated Idaho 2-0 in Logan, but fell to Fresno State 1-0 in Fresno, Calif.

Top-seeded San Jose State will face the winner of the match-up between fourth-seeded Idaho and fifth-seed and host Louisiana Tech on Friday, Nov. 5 at 3 p.m.

Utah State has never faced Idaho in the WAC Tournament, but has met Fresno State once. The Aggies and the Bulldogs met in an epic double overtime match in the finals of the 2008 WAC Tournament in Reno, Nev. Fresno State edged Utah State 2-1. In 2005, the Bulldogs also beat USU by the same 2-1 margin in the WAC Tournament in quarterfinals in Boise, Idaho.
