LOGAN, Utah – Sophomore defensive tackle Seni Tuiaki lived every defensive lineman’s dream, returning an INT for a touchdown to give his team a 17-7 first-half lead.

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

With Nevada approaching the red zone, senior linebacker MJ Tafisi Jr. hurried AJ Bianco, forcing a wild pass that landed in Tuaki’s lap. With a head of steam, the former East High Leopard took the turnover 63 yards for an Aggie touchdown.

Utah State leads Nevada 17-7 midway through the second 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].”
