LOGAN, Utah – After leading his team to 31 unanswered points, Cooper Legas was finished, instead throwing his career-high fourth touchdown of the game early in the final quarter.
The Aggies (2-3, 0-1) are hosting the Colorado State Rams in a Mountain West matchup at Maverik Stadium in Logan, UT.

The Aggies’ third three-play scoring drive of the half ended with Micah Davis making a great adjustment on a back shoulder pass from Legas at the goal-line to put USU in front 37-17 after a missed extra point.
Legas is 17-of-27 for 362 yards and his first four touchdown game. Only three Utah State wideouts have made a catch but Davis (4/80, TD) has combined with Terrell Vaughn (7/142, TD) and Jalen Royals (6/140, 2 TDs) for a banner day from USU wide receivers.
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.
