LOGAN, Utah — Utah State's game vs. Wyoming scheduled for Thursday night has been canceled due to what officials call an "upward trend" of COVID-19 cases within the Aggies program.

The Mountain West Conference announced the cancellation Wednesday, adding that the game will be declared a no contest and will not be rescheduled.

The 0-4 Aggies and new starting quarterback Cooper Legas were scheduled to kick off the game at 7 p.m. in Laramie.

The University of Utah has yet to play its first game of the season after previously-scheduled games against Arizona and UCLA were canceled because of rising COVID-19 cases. The Utes remain scheduled to face USC at home Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
