BYU Football: Pregame Injury Updates for Utah State – Sports Illustrated

Kalani Sitake provided injury updates ahead of BYU-Utah State. Here is a recap.
Utah State is dealing with a key injury at the quarterback position. Utah State will start backup quarterback Cooper Legas against BYU. Legas, a junior from nearby Orem, has appeared in four games for Utah State. This will be Legas' first career start at quarterback. USU starting quarterback Logan Bonner will not dress for the game due to injury.

In four games played, he has thrown for 211 yards and he has completed 49% of his passes. Legas has struggled in limited reps this season. He has completed 7/17 passes for 40 yards and 1 interception this year.
