LOGAN, UT- OCTOBER 8: Cooper Legas #5 of the Utah State Aggies throws a pass against the Air Force Falcons during the first half of their game on October 8, 2022 at Maverik Stadium in Logan, Utah.

LOGAN, Utah – Utah State didn’t run much time off the clock in the second half before Cooper Legas found a streaking Terrell Vaughn for a 76-yard scoring strike that gave the Aggies a 24-17 lead.

The Aggies (2-3, 0-1) are hosting the Colorado State Rams in a Mountain West matchup at Maverik Stadium in Logan, UT.

On the third play of the half from scrimmage, Legas launched a perfectly placed ball to Vaughn down the CSU sideline. Vaughn eluded one Ram tackler before somersaulting into the end zone for his seventh touchdown of the year.

The 76-yard score was a career long for both Legas and Vaughn.

Legas is 12-of-21 for 238 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Vaughn’s six grabs for 115 yards lead the Aggies. USU holds a 24-17 lead with 12:48 left in the third quarter.

Utah State Aggies vs. Colorado State Rams All-Time

This is the 79th meeting between this programs in a series dating back to 1902. Only Utah (112) and Brigham Young (91) have faced the Aggies more times. USU looks to inch closer to .500 in the all-time series, trailing 37-39-2 in the all-time series against CSU and 20-20-1 at home.

Utah State has won the last four games including a 17-13 win in Fort Collins last October. Fans might remember it as the ‘Bishop Davenport game’ in which the fourth-string freshman QB was unexpectedly pressed into action after Cooper Legas and Levi Williams were injured. Davenport went 3-of-9 through the air for 41 yards. The true freshman quarterback ran for 29 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in his first appearance.

USU held on for a 26-24 win the last time these teams locked horns at Maverik Stadium in 2021.
