“There wasn’t a lot to celebrate in Utah’s loss to Arizona on Saturday, but wide receiver Devaughn Vele was a bright spot hauling in nine catches for 111 yards, and one touchdown. Vele’s touchdown came in the second quarter when quarterback Bryson Barnes rifled one to the corner of the endzone for Utah’s score. The Utes would go on to lose 42-18 to the Wildcats.” – Utah insider Michelle Bodkin

“Desperate for a fast start against Boise State, Cooper Legas and Jalen Royals hooked up for a a 57-yard scoring strike to give USU a 7-0 lead. With just under six minutes left in the first quarter, Legas stepped up in the pocket before launching a high-arcing pass down the sideline. Royals hauled in the ball near the ten-yard line and evaded a tackler before tight-roping the sideline and extending the ball over the pylon for his 12th TD of the year. It was the sixth touchdown catch of 50-plus yards for Royals this season, the most in the country. The play ended up being one of the lone bright spots for Utah State in a 45-10 loss.” USU insider Brian Preece
