The seventh time was the charm for the Aggies in an epic fifth set in front of a raucous crowd at Club Estes.

Kylee Stokes and Kennedi Boyd teamed up for a block on Utah State’s seventh match point of the decisive fifth set to propel the hosts to a gratifying, come-from-behind, hard-fought 3-2 victory (25-21, 18-25, 22-25, 25-22, 22-20) over a very good San Jose State team in a Mountain West volleyball showdown on Thursday night on Kirby Court.
