LOGAN, Utah - Utah State Athletics has announced some game day information for fans in preparation for the Aggies’ home game against BYU on Friday night on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium.

Friday’s game is being sponsored by America First Credit Union. Gates at Maverik Stadium will open at 4 p.m. with kickoff slated for 6:05 p.m.

The Aggies enter their final non-conference game of the season with a 2-2 overall mark and 1-0 record in the Mountain West after a 61-10 victory at San José State last Saturday. The Cougars, who are coming off a bye week, are 1-3 and have lost three straight since opening the season with a 20-6 home win against Portland State.

Utah State and BYU are playing for possession of ‘The Old Wagon Wheel,’ the traveling trophy between the two schools. The Wheel became part of the rivalry in 1948 and since its inception, the Cougars hold a 40-23 advantage in the series. BYU currently has possession of the traveling trophy after its 28-10 win in Provo last year.

This is the first of three-straight home games for the Aggies, who will also host back-to-back Mountain West games against Colorado State and Wyoming on Saturday, Oct. 7, and Saturday, Oct. 14, respectively. Both of those contests are slated to begin at 2:30 p.m. The last time Utah State had three-straight home games was in 1997.
