LOGAN, UT – In his first chance at a return this season, Aggie kick returner Terrell Vaughn took the ball 100-yards to give USU a 7-3 lead.

The Aggies (1-1) are hosting Weber State (1-0) at Maverik Stadium in Logan, UT on Saturday, September 10.

Vaughn fielded the kick near the right hash, spun away from a potential tackler near the 20-yard line, and saw nothing but daylight on his way to the endzone.

The junior from Oxnard, CA has two catches for 17 yards and one carry for 10 yards on the ground this season to go along with this touchdown.

Weber State leads the Aggies 10-7 and has the ball with just under four minutes remaining in the first quarter.

Utah State Aggies (1-1)

Quarterback Logan Bonner is 23-for-38 for 320 yards and three scores this season.

Brian Cobbs, a wide receiver transfer from Maryland, leads the Aggies with 10 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. Justin McGriff and Kyle Van Leeuwen have also found the end zone this season.

Out of the backfield, Calvin Tyler Jr. has been the bell-cow back with 177 yards on 45 carries. Freshman Robert Briggs has added 113 yards on 20 carries with a touchdown against UConn.

Redshirt-freshman cornerback Ike Larsen has been a revelation for the Aggies as he has two interceptions and a blocked punt this season.

FCS No. 16 Weber State Wildcats (1-0)

The Wildcats opened their 2022 campaign with a decisive 41-5 win over Western Oregon.

WSU totaled 342 yards of offense while limiting Western Oregon to just 95 yards of offense. Western Oregon’s minus 34-yards rushing set a Weber State program record for the fewest rushing yards allowed in a single game.

Sophomore quarterback Bronson Barron finished with 152 yards and no touchdowns through the air on 16-for-28 passing.

The Wildcats focused on the rushing attack as five players finished with more than 20 yards on the ground. Josh Davis led the WSU attack with 56 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.

Weber State is led by Jay Hill in his ninth season with the program. Hill is WSU’s all-time winningest coach with 58 career wins.

Series History

This is the 16th matchup between the two programs separated by about 60 minutes of driving. Utah State has controlled the series, winning 14 of the first 15 games played between the two. USU is 9-1 against the Wildcats at home and have won the last eight games of the series dating back to 1978. The Wildcats only win against USU came in 1978 in a 44-25 victory in Logan.

Aggie Captains

Utah State named five captains ahead of their game against Weber State. Junior wide receiver Kyle Van Leeuwen; graduate senior offensive lineman Alfred Edwards; redshirt-freshman cornerback Ike Larsen; senior cornerback Michael Anyanwu; and junior linebacker MJ Tafisi.
