Utah State fans arrive in Columbus for the Big Dance


COLUMBUS, Ohio (ABC4 Sports)  Hundreds of Utah State basketball fans traveled nearly 1,700 miles from Logan to Columbus, Ohio to cheer on their Aggies as they try to win their first NCAA Tournament game in 18 years.

The Aggies take on Pac-12 regular season champion Washington Friday night, with the winner playing the North Carolina Iona winner on Sunday.

This is Utah State’s first appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 8 years, and they have just one victory in the Big Dance since 1970.

Utah State sold out its allotment of 450 tickets within hours of Selection Sunday, and many students made a 3-day bus trip to Columbus without stopping.
