Mountain West college basketball rivals the Utah State Aggies and the Wyoming Cowboys clash on Wednesday.

The Utah State Aggies have their sights set on a top four finish in the Mountain West and might be on their way with three straight wins after upending the New Mexico Lobos 89-90 as a three point home favorite. Utah State won the shooting battle 56.4%-48.3% which added up to five field goals. 

Koby McEwan carried the Aggies offense with a contest high 31 points with 13 rebounds, six assists and three steals on 10-15 from the floor including 6-8 from long range. Quinn Taylor and Dwayne Brown Jr. gave Utah State 15 points and five pulls each while Sam Merrill netted 18 points on 5-9 accuracy.

The Wyoming Cowboys have established themselves as a top four squad in the Mountain West but their spot isn’t secure. Wyoming appeared to be in cruise control with four straight wins before suffering an 80-62 defeat to the visiting Fresno State Bulldogs. The Cowboys struggled to sink shots at 35.8% while Fresno State burned the nets at 54.4%.

Hayden Dalton was Wyoming’s best option at the offensive end of the floor with 20 points and eleven rebounds on 7-16 from the floor including 3-9 on threes with Alan Herndon tossing in eleven points. Justin James gave the Cowboys nine points and five assists on 3-10 while Alexander Aka Gorski chipped in with eight points.

Under is 5-1-2 in Utah State last 8 road games. Over is 13-3 in Wyoming last 16 overall and over is 50-21 in Wyoming last 71 vs. Mountain West and over is 51-24 in Wyoming last 75 home games. Home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. 

This matchup usually goes to the home team but I still won’t lay too much chalk…

Wyoming -3.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
