The Cougars (3-1) are scheduled to host the Aggies (1-3) at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Thursday, September 29.

A few hours before kickoff, ESPN college football insider Pete Thamel reported that Bonner would not dress in the “Battle for the Old Wagon Wheel.” The insider added that former Orem High standout Cooper Legas would start in place of Bonner.

“Sources: Utah State will start back-up QB Cooper Legas at BYU tonight (8 pm ESPN) Starting quarterback Logan Bonner will not dress with a leg injury,” Thamel tweeted.
