BYU WR Darius Lassiter Comes Up With Insane One-Handed Catch

“Greatest catch in BYU football history? Wide Receiver Darius Lassiter makes a claim after hauling in an Odell Beckham Jr.-style one-handed grab during the second quarter of action in a 27-14 win over Texas Tech. The catch was deemed the No. 3 play of the day on ESPN’s SportsCenter for October 21, 2023.” – BYU insider Mitch Harper

“With 16 seconds left on the clock, quarterback Bryson Barnes took off for 26 yards to help set up what would end up being a game-winning field goal for the Utes. As the clock wound down to five seconds, kicker Cole Becker set up and split the uprights with a beautiful 39-yard field goal to give Utah a four-game win streak over USC as both teams go their separate ways in 2024.” – Utah insider Michelle Bodkin

Utah State Aggies

Micah Davis Touchdown Brings Utah State Even With San Jose State

“Trailing 14-7 late in the second period, USU QB McCae Hillstead led a long drive into the red zone. On 2nd-&-11, Hillstead dropped back into a clean pocket and drilled a 25-yard dart to junior wideout Micah Davis for a game-tying touchdown.” – USU insider Brian Preece
