The bigger news out of that USU game is that Brady Jardine may be out for a long time, suffered some sort of injury to his ankle (possibly broken). X-rays tomorrow according to Deseret News twitter feed. Stew apparently didn't sound optimistic.

That would put a HUGE damper on USU's hopes for a WAC title and could endanger their postseason hopes

I went to the NMSU game against Northern Colorado, that is one athletic group. Do you think they have become the favorite in the WAC over Utah State?

To Jon,

Don't forget Nevada and Hawaii but yes, the southern Aggies have the current momentum.

Let's see what's up with Brady Jardine.
