San Diego State’s men’s basketball team just keeps on climbing the polls.

The Aztecs are ranked No. 5 in the latest AP and USA Today Coaches polls, jumping from No. 7 in both polls a week ago.

After Saturday night’s overtime win over Utah State, the Aztecs (18-1) have won 17 straight games and are a perfect 7-0 in the Mountain West Conference.

It’s SDSU’s highest ranking since jumping to No. 4 in the AP poll on Jan. 24, 2011. That year, the Aztecs won 20 games to start the season – the only longer winning streak in school history.

They return home to play Saturday afternoon against Colorado State. The game starts at 4 p.m. at Viejas Arena.
