BYU vs. Utah State updates: NCAA football live scores, results for Thursday


After a two-game homestand, the Utah State Aggies will be on the road. They will face the BYU Cougars at 8 p.m. ET Thursday at LaVell Edwards Stadium. BYU should always feel good after a win, while the Aggies will be looking to get back into the win column.

Utah State came up short against the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, losing 34-24. QB Logan Bonner had a memorable game, but not in the way you’d like to be remembered: Despite three touchdowns, he threw five interceptions and fumbled the ball once.

Meanwhile, when you finish 247 more yards than your opponent like BYU did on Saturday, a favorable result is almost sure to follow. They emerged victorious against the Wyoming Cowboys by a score of 38-24. The win came even though BYU handicapped themselves with 104 penalty yards. BYU QB Jaren Hall threw it as he passed for four touchdowns and 337 yards on 32 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was Hall’s 68-yard TD bomb against WR Keanu Hill in the fourth quarter.

Utah State must know they will be fighting an uphill battle given the 24-point gap they face. Those betting on them ATS shouldn’t have high expectations of them since the team is 0-2 ATS when they should lose.

The Aggies are now 1-3 while the Cougars sit at a 3-1 mirror image. Two numbers to keep in mind heading into kickoff: Utah State enters the contest having won the ball six times, good for 10th nationally. But BYU enters the game with the ninth-fewest interceptions thrown in the country at a time. We will see which of these forces – offensive or defensive – will prevail.
