Utah State 17, Colorado State 13

4th Quarter

Utah State 17, Colorado State 13


  • Utah State safety Gurvan Hall Jr., intercepts CSU quarterback Giles Pooler and returns it for a 32-yard touchdown. Two penalties — holding and unsportsmanlike conduct — negated the touchdown, however.


  • The Aggies defense stands firm and holds CSU to a field goal try, which is good from Michael Boyle from 35 yards.

3rd Quarter

Utah State 17, Colorado State 10


  • USU running back Robert Briggs has the ball stripped deep in Aggies’ territory and recovered by CSU’s Cam Bariteau. Dequan Jackson forced the fumble.


  • True freshman quarterback Bishop Davenport, in for the injured Cooper Legas and Levi Williams, rushed for a 4-yard touchdown, capping off an 8-play, 59-yard drive.


  • USU kicker Connor Coles connects on a 48-yard field goal attempt, knotting things up. Coles had missed his previous two attempts in the game.

2nd Quarter

Colorado State 10, Utah State 7


  • Colorado State is held to a field goal try and the attempt by Michael Boyle goes wide left from 39 yards out.

  • Legas finds wide receiver Justin McGriff for a 32-yard touchdown reception, capping off a 9-play, 87-yard drive.


  • USU kicker Connor Coles misses 45-yard field goal wide right that would have knotted things up, ending an 11-play, 47-yard drive.


  • The Rams make the turnover pay off with a 23-yard field goal by Michael Boyle.
