PROVO, Utah – Brian Cobbs put the Cougar faithful on upset alert with a touchdown grab to give the Aggies a 17-14 lead over No. 19 BYU.

Utah State (1-3, 0-1) is looking to end a three game losing streak as they face the No. 19 BYU Cougars (3-1) at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Thursday, September 29.

After Calvin Tyler Jr. put the Aggies in the red zone with a 23-yard gallop, Cooper Legas hit first year Aggie Brian Cobbs with a perfect 14-yard back shoulder pass that gave the upset-minded Aggies their second lead of the first half.

Tyler Jr. rushed for 30 yards on the drive while Cobbs caught two passes for 21 yards.

Legas has looked comfortable if unspectacular in his first career start, throwing for 58 yards and a touchdown on 8-for-14 passing. Cobbs has 50 yards on five receptions while Tyler Jr. and Robert Briggs have combined for 107 yards on the ground.

Preview

Utah State is struggling at 1-3 and searching for immediate answers. The Cougars came into tonight’s matchup ranked No. 19 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and are 3-1 overall on the year.

There’s no game that the Aggies would love to circle the wagons for than the Wagon Wheel rivalry game against BYU. Unfortunately for the Aggies, shortly before kickoff reports surfaced that starting quarterback Logan Bonner would miss tonight’s game. Bonner was seen in a walking boot prior to kickoff.

Junior quarterback Cooper Legas made his first career start with Bonner out.

Prior to tonight, Legas has seen action in two games this season. He’s thrown for 40 yards and a pick on 7/17 passing. He’s also run for 20 yards on seven carries. During his college career, Legas has thrown for a total of 211 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions with a 48.6 completion percentage.

With this being the final scheduled game between the two schools as BYU transitions into the Big-12 conference era, Utah State remains committed to continuing the tradition.

Utah State named five captains prior to tonight’s game. Senior wide reciever Justin McGriff; graduate senior safety Hunter Reynolds; freshman linebacker Max Alford; graduate senior offensive lineman Jacob South; and junior defensive tackle Poukesi Vakauta.

BYU/Utah State kicked off at 6 p.m. (MT) on ESPN and KSL NewsRadio. Every Utah State football game can be heard on the KSL Sports Zone with Scott Garrard and former Aggie quarterback Kevin White on the call.
