Minutes before the 11 a.m. tipoff, a few thousand students will begin chanting "I believe that we will win" while jumping up and down in a sort of vertical mosh pit stretching from the front row behind the east baseline to the top row of Viejas Arena.
They'll continue making noise of some sort until the Aztecs have either gained revenge for their only loss or been foiled again by Jimmer Fredette.
The 27-1 record and No. 6 ranking aren't the only indications that Steve Fisher's Aztecs have hit the big time in college basketball.
The ever-expanding student section has given the Aztecs a formidable home-court advantage.
