LOGAN, Utah – Making his first start in nearly a month, senior QB Cooper Legas marched the Aggies down the field on their opening drive, finding Broc Lane for a touchdown to give USU a 7-0 lead.

Utah State is hosting the Nevada Wolf Pack at Maverik Stadium on Saturday, November 11.

Legas and Robert Briggs accounted for 43 yards on the ground as Utah State took the opening kickoff and marched down the field in less than four minutes.

On fourth-and-goal from the four-yard line, Legas play faked before finding Lane streaking across the backline of the end zone. It was Lane’s first TD of the season.

USU leads Nevada 7-0 midway through the first quarter.

Previewing Utah State vs. Nevada

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].”

Week Ten Captains

Utah State named five captains before facing the Wolf Pack.

Graduate senior linebacker MJ Tafisi Jr., graduate senior cornerback Michael Anyanwu, senior wide receiver Terrell Vaughn, senior quarterback Cooper Legas, and freshman wide receiver Austin Okerwa.
