Oct 15, 2022, 7:05 PM | Updated: Oct 17, 2022, 2:40 pm

LOGAN, Utah – After injuries to starting quarterback Cooper Legas and backup quarterback Levi Williams, Bishop Davenport makes his Aggie debut.

Utah State faced the Colorado State Rams at Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins, CO on Saturday, October 15.

Legas was forced out of the game late in the first quarter after appearing to suffer a head injury. His replacement, Levi Williams, appeared to injure his lower right leg on a scramble late in the first half.

Williams is currently questionable to return. Garrett Larson is the last remaining quarterback on the Aggie depth chart.

Utah State Aggies (2-4, 1-1) vs. Colorado State Rams (1-4, 1-0)

Coming off of their best team performance of the season, Utah State can continue to climb the conference standings against a Colorado State teams that has endured their own ups and downs this year.

For USU, a second straight win revolves around controlling the trenches on both sides of the ball.

The Rams have a Mountain West worst 361 rushing yards this season. They have yet to score a touchdown on the ground.

While the Aggie rush defense hasn’t been stellar this season, they have shown progress in recent weeks. Statistically, the Aggie defense is third worst in the Mountain West and should welcome the challenge of a team like Colorado State that struggle mightily to move the chains on the ground.

With seven sacks, the Aggies have the third fewest sacks in the Mountain West, ahead of only Hawaii and Air Force.

While USU has struggled to collapse the pocket, Colorado State has allowed a league worst 26 sacks through five games. That’s an average of more than five sacks allowed per game.

Cooper Legas has been sacked three times since taking over at quarterback for Logan Bonner just two games ago.

If the offensive line can consistently provide protection for Legas, wide receivers Brian Cobbs, Justin McGriff and Terrell Vaughn should have time to find open space in the Rams secondary.

The Aggies named five captains for their game against Colorado State. Junior wide receiver Terrell Vaughn; senior defensive tackle Hale Motu’apuaka; graduate senior safety Hunter Reynolds; graduate senior kicker Connor Coles; and graduate senior offensive tackle Alfred Edwards.
