LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State Aggies had a great weekend in Las Vegas as they won their first ever Mountain West Conference Tournament Championship, knocking off San Diego State in the final.

The reward for such a great weekend, included a berth in the NCAA Tournament, sending the Aggies to Columbus, Ohio as a No. 8-seed, facing No. 9 Washington on Friday at 4:50 p.m. on TNT.

It was announced on Monday, that the Aggies cracked the Top 25 Poll that the Associated Press releases weekly. The Aggies are nationally ranked for the first time since the 2010-11 season, the last time they won their conference tournament.

Utah State is one of five schools in the country to be ranked nationally in the AP Poll entering the NCAA Tournament, while also having the football team finish the season in the Top 25 ranking. They join Cincinnati, LSU, Kentucky and Michigan.

This Utah State team is the eighth in school history to be nationally ranked, joining the 1959-60, 1960-61, 1970-71, 2003-04, 2008-09 and 2010-11 teams. The highest ranking in school history was the 1959-60 season when they were No. 7 in the country.

They are currently on a 10-game winning streak, which is tied with Iona for eighth-longest active winning streak in the nation. Wofford’s 20-game winning streak is the longest active streak in the country.
