Utah State and Utah will resume their hoops basketball series in 2014, with a four game home and home contract to be played once a year.
That will end a four-year hiatus to the series, which the Utes ended when they moved from the Mountain West Conference to the Pac-12.
The last time the two teams played, Utah State walked away with a 79-62 win in the Spectrum. Brady Jardine had a breakout game that night with 20 points and 13 rebounds. The Aggies led from start to finish and handed Utah its first loss of that season.
It turned out to be the last time the two teams played. Utah would go on to fire Jim Boylen at the end of that season.
Both teams figure to be stronger by the time 2014 rolls around. The Aggies will be in the Mountain West Conference by then, while a few more years in the Pac-12 will give the Utes time to recruit a better roster than they will have this upcoming season.
