LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State Aggies will reportedly join the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

According to Utah State, they’ll open the season with a game against Witchita State on November 25 at 7:30 p.m.

“We are thrilled to be participating in the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover event,” USU head men’s basketball coach Craig Smith said. “This event will have an NCAA Tournament vibe and will be first class in every aspect. The Sanford Pentagon is a unique, state-of-the-art arena that oozes with nostalgia and honors the history of the great game of basketball.”

The event was originally scheduled to take place in the Bahamas as the “Battle 4 Atlantis” tournament. The tournament was canceled due to COVID-19 but the teams involved still wanted to hold the event so they moved it to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Utah was apart of the field along with Creighton, Memphis, South Dakota, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Ohio State and Wichita State. Ohio State pulled out and was replaced by St. Mary’s and now the Aggies will reportedly take Dayton’s place.

The Utes pulled out of the tournament due to COVID-19 concerns as the state of South Dakota is going through a spike in cases.

Utah State’s non-conference slate hasn’t been announced but their Mountain West schedule was released. They will begin their MWC Tournament title defense on Tuesday, December 29 on the road against Air Force.
