Aggies' "I Believe" Chant Goes Viral

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

For a while, the Utah State Aggies were arguing with Navy and San Diego State over ownership of the "I Believe" chant. That argument just got a little tougher.

The phenomenon that is the "I Believe" chant began at a Navy football game many years ago. No one remembers the Midshipmen when they think of it now, though, as the Utah State Aggies- who have gained a reputation for being some of the most united and best organized fans in the country- made it their own and gained national attention for it. San Diego State jumped on the bandwagon shortly after, and now the wave is spreading to new heights. According to Scott Garrard's Twitter account, the Utah Jazz have set aside 1000 free seats in a preseason game specifically for Aggie fans to come and recreate "I Believe" for the Salt Lake based NBA team. And now the US Soccer fan-dome has adopted the cheer as well, taking it to the international stage of the FIFA World Cup. ESPN did a short coverage of the chant prior to today's match of the US vs. Belgium, and they included a clip of the Aggie fans doing their iconic cheer at the Aggie Spectrum. Talk about great coverage for USU on national TV!
