In so many ways, 2012 has been a season of firsts for Utah State.
The No. 18 Aggies set new school marks with 10 wins and six home victories. They won their first outright conference title since 1936.
The Aggies (10-2) reached new heights behind one of the nation's stingiest defenses, an opportunistic offense and a senior class that has been one of the best ever recruited to campus.
Yet despite all the accolades and achievements, fourth-year coach Gary Andersen knows there is one more milestone yet to be crossed off this year's list.
''For me, this team will always go down as one of the special groups I've ever been around for what they've accomplished,'' Andersen said. ''What they've accomplished to this point, no one can ever take away from them.
''We've been able to get a couple of championships on our wall since we've been there. But we don't have a bowl game trophy up there yet, and we need to be able to get that done.''
The Aggies will get their shot when they square off...
