LOGAN, Utah -
Utah State Athletics has announced some game day information for fans in preparation of the Aggies’ Homecoming game against Wyoming on Saturday afternoon on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium.
Saturday’s game is being sponsored by Smith’s, while Staker Parson Companies is the supporting sponsor. Gates at Maverik Stadium will open at 12:30 p.m. with kickoff slated for 2:30 p.m.
The Aggies (3-3, 1-1 Mountain West) enter the game fresh off a 27-14 loss to Colorado State last Saturday afternoon. The Cowboys, who are 3-2 overall and 1-0 in conference play, had a bye last weekend.
Utah State and Wyoming have a storied history dating back to the early 1900s as both schools were members of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) from 1916-37, and later members of the Mountain States/Skyline Conference from 1938-61. Along with its current membership in the Mountain West, the Aggies and Cowboys have been league foes for a total of 52 years.
In what is the fourth-most played rivalry in school history, Utah State leads the series with Wyoming 38-25-4, including 25-10-1 at home. The Aggies have won three straight at home over the Cowboys.
