Reigning WAC softball champions, NMSU is sitting one spot behind the Aggies in the standings, at No. 8. The Crimson Aggies are 1-14 in WAC games this season and are 20-27 overall.
First pitch on Friday is set for 6 p.m. (MT) in Las Cruces. Last season, NMSU took all three games from USU in Logan.
Last time out, Utah State defeated border-foe Idaho State in a pitching and defensive struggle as senior pitcher Dani Chaplin combined with junior pitcher Shelbi Tyteca to one-hit the Bengals en route to a, 2-0 victory on Wednesday, April 25.
