LOGAN, Utah – Utah State quarterback Cooper Legas threw a deep touchdown pass to Terrell Vaughn late in the third quarter against Boise State on Friday.

With 10 seconds left in the third quarter and Utah State with their backs against the wall, Cooper Legas threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Vaughn. That cut the Boise State lead to 28-17.

Through three quarters, Legas completed 16 of his 27 pass attempts for 200 yards and one touchdown, along with 10 carries for 51 yards. Vaughn had seven receptions for 117 yards and one TD to go with four rushes for 22 yards and a score.

It’s the 11th touchdown pass of the season for Legas. Vaughn broke the tie for the team lead with his fifth touchdown catch and sixth total TD this season.

About Utah State/Boise State

Boise State enters having already clinched the Mountain West’s No. 1 seed. With it comes home-field advantage in the conference title game against Fresno State on December 3.

Led by dual-threat quarterback Taylen Green, the Broncos have a dynamic offense that averages 29.1 points per game. A redshirt freshman, Green has completed 65 percent of his passes for 1510 yards to go with eight touchdowns and four interceptions. Green has rushed for 346 yards and seven scores.

Add running back George Holani’s 1,008 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, and the Broncos have a formidable rushing attack that accounts for 189 yards per game on the ground. Good for the third-best in the Mountain West.

The Broncos have built the league’s third-best total offense and second-best scoring attack.

Defensively, Boise State provides a formidable test. Fourth in the MW in stopping the run, the Broncos pass defense allows a conference-best 145.4 yards per game. JL Skinner leads the secondary with four interceptions and four pass breakups. Rodney Robinson has picked off three balls this year.

Graduate senior wide receiver Brian Cobbs (63 receptions) is just four grabs away from entering the top 10 in school history for receptions in a season.

The Utah State/Boise State game is televised on CBS and can be heard on the KSL Sports Zone.
