Utah State (12-3, 3-1) at UC Irvine (8-4, 2-1), 7, KDOC-TV (Channel 56), KUCI-FM (88.9) -- This looked like the game of the season when Big West Conference play started two weeks ago. But rival Cal State Fullerton beat Irvine and Utah State lost to front-running Pacific. If history holds, the result will be close. Utah State holds a 25-24 edge in the series. Last season the Aggies and Anteaters split one-point outcomes, each winning on the road. After a slow start, senior forward Jordan Harris of Irvine has scored in double figures in eight of his last 10 games. Forward Desmond Penigar leads Utah State in scoring (16.9 points).
