No. 17 Utah State wards off Montana State in season opener, 81-73

Logan • The Utah State Aggies started the season with some high expectations, being ranked No. 17 in the country by the Associated Press before playing a single game. Then the Aggies went ahead and trounced their first and only exhibition opponent, College of Idaho.

But Tuesday at The Spectrum against Montana State was USU’s first official foray into the 2019-20 season. Although the game was tight throughout, the No. 17 Aggies found a way to beat the Bobcats 81-73.

Senior guard Sam Merrill led the Aggies with 28 points on 5 of-14 shooting.
