On Saturday, Utah State football plays host to the San Jose State Spartans in the Aggies’ penultimate regular-season game of the 2022-23 college football season.
The Aggies and Spartans first met in 1940 and have faced off at least once in every decade since.
Here’s what has happened between the Aggies and the Spartans in previous matchups.
