Utah State had gone through Mountain West Conference play without a game cancellation or postponement until last week, and now the Aggies have them in back-to-back weeks.

The league announced Tuesday morning that USU’s two-game series with Wyoming this week is postponed due to health and safety concerns. The Aggies and Cowboys were scheduled to play Wednesday and Friday in Logan.

This comes after USU’s second game at Fresno State last Saturday was also postponed; the Aggies beat the Bulldogs in their first scheduled game earlier in the week.

Now, barring any changes to the schedule — a possibility during the COVID-19 pandemic impacted season — the league-leading Aggies will next play at Boise State on Feb. 17 and 19.

The Broncos sat atop the MWC standings until last week, when they lost two games at Nevada. Utah State, with an 11-2 conference record, now is first in the league standings, a half-game up on Colorado State and a full game up on Boise State.
