The Utah State Aggies play in Maverik Stadium, a venue formerly known as Romney Stadium. It has recently undergone renovations that have increased the seating capacity to over 25,000 with new luxury skyboxes and an improved concourse level. The Stadium was named for their all-time winningest head coach in Dick Romney, but the corporate naming will bring in much needed funds for the stadium improvements.
Maverik Stadium’s renovation will be completed by the 2016 season so fans for this season may have to put up with some minor construction inconveniences. There will be some temporary seats added to alleviate some of this for the upcoming season though, so do not be afraid to buy your Aggies tickets. You won’t want to miss out on any of the action.
In recent seasons, the Aggies have been very competitive in the Mountain West Conference. They were 10-4 in 2014 including a win over Texas El Paso in the New Mexico Bowl 21-6. In 2013 the Aggies went 9-5 and beat Northern Illinois 21-14 in the Poinsettia Bowl and in 2012 they were 11-2 with a win over Toledo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl 41-15. Will the Aggies have another great season ending with a bowl victory? Come out the Maverik Stadium and find out.
The Aggies are part of the Mountain West Conference. The MWC bowl tie ins include the Las Vegas Bowl, Hawaii Bowl, Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego, New Mexico Bowl, Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise and the Arizona Bowl. Utah State will be looking at a nice bowl destination if they can have another winning season this year.
Utah State’s head coach Matt Wells is 19-9 in his three seasons at the helm. Another great season and he could well be on his way to the next Power Five coaching opening.
Maverik Stadium, like many of the MWC venues has a very picturesque setting with the mountains in the background. The silver aluminum seats almost look as if they blend in with the Rocky Mountains. While enjoying a great football game, you can also enjoy your favorite concession items such as chicken sandwiches, nachos, churros, popcorn, pretzels and Coke products. These are all at reasonable stadium prices.
Utah State has seen stars such as Merlin Olsen, Jim Turner, Eric Hipple, Rulon Jones, Greg Kragen and Kevin Robinson come through the program and go on to the NFL. Olsen is a Hall of Fame member of the Fearsome Foursome, the Los Angeles Rams great defensive line of the 1960s. The Field at Maverik Park is named after him.
The Aggies home schedule includes Southern Utah, Colorado State, Boise State, Wyoming, Nevada and BYU. Colorado State, Boise State and BYU will all be big games with both teams looking for bowl bids. BYU will be the big in-state rivalry game. Be sure to get your tickets for these games as they are sure to sell quickly!
Utah State football is a great way to spend a weekend with the kids. You will all have a great time rooting on the Aggies!
