LOGAN — Utah State football is prepared to take on the very best that the Pac-12 has to offer.
The Aggies announced a three-game series with the defending Pac-12 champion Oregon Ducks, early Tuesday. Utah State will play in Eugene on Sept. 18, 2027, and again on Sept. 15, 2029. The Ducks, meanwhile, will travel to Logan on Sept. 16, 2028.
Utah State is 0-4 all-time against Oregon, having lost in Eugene in 1976, 1990 and 2008 and in Logan in 2001. USU is 40-125-5 all-time against Pac-12 competition, namely Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State (the only Pac-12 team USU hasn’t played in its history is California).
The Aggies haven’t hosted a Pac-12 opponent since 2012, when they defeated rival Utah 27-20 in overtime. Utah State is scheduled to host Washington State this fall on Sept. 3, in the 2020-21 season opener, and will also travel to Washington to take on the Huskies on Sept. 19 in Seattle.
This past season, Utah State finished 7-6 in head coach Gary Andersen’s return to Cache Valley. The Aggies were in the hunt for the Mountain West Championship most of the year, before a late-season loss to Boise State eliminated them from title contention.
The face of that team, quarterback Jordan Love, was recently drafted in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. Love became USUs only first-round draft pick in the last 50 years.
