Fight Songs

  1. The Scotsman

    After the Aggies marching band plays the school’s fight song, Hail the Utah Aggies, the Hurd fan section sings another one called “The Scotsman”. It is a short little song that they sing twice going through two different arm motions. It is quite the spectacle and adds a little bit of Utah State flare to the game.

    Show me the Scotsman who doesnt’ love the thistle.
    Show me the Englishman who doesn’t love the rose. Show me the true blooded Aggie from Utah
    Who doesn’t love the spot where the sagebrush grows!
    (Repeat- Louder & Faster)

  2. Hail the Utah Aggies

    The school’s primary fight song

    Hail the Utah Aggies, We’ll play the game with all our might.
    See the colors flying, The Aggie Blue and Fighting White.
    How they stir us onward!
    We’ll gain the victory, All Right!
    Hail the Utah Aggies, We’re out to win so Fight! Fight! Fight!  (CHANT)
    Utah State Hey! Aggies all the way!
    Go Aggies! Go Aggies! Hey! Hey! Hey!  
    (Repeat First Verse)

  3. Alma Mater

    Across the Quad at even tide,
    As shadows softly fall,
    The tower of Old Main appears and
    Peace rests over all.
    The lighted “A” upon the hill
    Stands out against the blue;
    Oh, Alma Mater, Utah State,
    My heart sings out to you.

    And through the years as time rolls on,
    And student friendships grow,
    We’ll ne’er forget the joys we had,
    Those days we use to know.
    Thy mem’ries ever will be new,
    Thy friends be ever true;
    Oh, Alma Mater, Utah State,
    My heart sings out to you.
