Utah State knows that dominating the Big West Conference in college basketball doesn't get you on ESPN. Being in the national rankings for the first time since 1971, now that's news. The Aggies have spent four weeks in the Associated Press poll this season, including a No. 22 ranking this week. "One of the first things I do when I get in my office on Monday is I get on the Internet and see where we're ranked," said Doug Thompson, mayor of the scenic Cache Valley college town of Logan.

UC Irvine's basketball team made the 2-hour flight from San Jose to Salt Lake City Sunday and then took a 2-hour bus trip up to Logan, home of Utah State University. Seems like a long trip for a 5-minute game. Utah State's Reid Newey made four consecutive 3-pointers in the first 5:13 of play Monday night, giving the Aggies a 19-6 lead and Irvine never got closer than 10 points before losing, 104-71, in front of 9,948 at the Spectrum.

The Big West Conference is adding another two California teams next season, but as far as men's basketball is concerned, Utah State owns the league.

Utah State, 12-3 in the Big West tournament since 1996, earned the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

When Utah State quarterback Matt Sauk played his final high school football game for Woodbridge, there were no major college scholarship offers awaiting him. "I wasn't that big, and my statistics in high school weren't all that great," Sauk said. "I wasn't 6 foot 4 like the scouts are always looking for, and my high school team didn't pass a lot." But Sauk wanted to play somewhere, and decided on Orange Coast College. It worked out well for him. Sauk had two good seasons.

The Cal State Northridge football team will enter Romney Stadium tonight with 20,000 fans and most of Utah State's team looking at the Matadors the way a lion looks at a piece of meat. Never mind a victory. The Matadors will be lucky to escape with their health. Coach Dave Baldwin knew Utah State would be a challenge for his team, but even he had to swallow hard last Saturday when he saw that the Aggies upset Utah, one of the top teams in the Western Athletic Conference, 20-17.

One of the few things the university administration, Smith's supporters and Smith's detractors can all agree on amid a swirl of misinformation and accusations is that Smith won't be coaching the Aggies next season.

Utah State, the Big West men's regular-season basketball championship last season for the first time since 1980, was picked to repeat in the coaches' preseason poll Wednesday. The Aggies have center Eric Franson, the conference's player of the year, back along with two other starters.

Say you were a highly regarded high school quarterback who got a Division I scholarship. Say you spend two seasons in college working your way up the depth chart and waiting for a chance to prove yourself. Say a new coaching staff takes over and, in no uncertain terms, tells you that their plans don't include you. Say, that sounds like the Aaron Flowers story. Flowers, Valley College's quarterback, rode that roller coaster. "I learned a lot from the experience, both good and bad," Flowers said.
