SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah State football team looks to improve to a .500 record overall and in Mountain West Conference play with a victory over the visiting Nevada Wolfpack.

Nevada vs. Utah State

The Aggies will host the Wolfpack at Maverik Stadium in Logan, Utah on Saturday, November 11.

Utah State currently sits a 4-5 on the season, including 2-3 in Mountain West games. Nevada will arrive in Northern Utah with a 2-7 record, including 2-3 in league play.

Ahead of the game, USU head coach Blake Anderson shared that Cooper Legas would be the Aggies’ starting quarterback for the contest.

“At this point, I feel like [Legas] gives us the best chance to win,” Anderson said. “If he went back in and played as a veteran guy and didn’t put the ball in harm’s way, then he’s earned the right to play. We’ll be moving forward with [Legas].”

Following the win over the Bengals, USU dropped games to Air Force and James Madison. Then, USU got back on track by taking down UConn and Colorado State. The Aggies then suffered losses to Fresno State and San Jose State before beating San Diego State.

Nevada started its season with six consecutive losses. The Wolfpack picked up their only wins of the season against San Diego State and New Mexico before falling to Hawai’i.
