Provo, UT—After a triumphant weekend, the Cougars (4-0) are back in Utah and ready to take on the Aggies on Saturday, February 7 in Logan, Utah on the Legacy Field.
“It was a fast-paced weekend,” said BYU rugby head coach David Smyth. “We had a great time at the Red Rock Invitational and played some good teams, but we’re definitely looking forward to being back in Utah.”
The last time BYU played Utah State University was in two years ago at home in Provo. The Cougars beat the Aggies 91-3.
USU is a club sport within Campus Recreation. The club began in the 1960s and is the oldest club at USU. The team recently had a change in leadership and is now under the direction of Coach Oisin Tong.
“This season is off to a good start,” said Coach Tong in a recent interview. “We won both games at the Red Rock Invitational last weekend. Last season we won every game except one. We’re excited for this upcoming game against BYU.”
BYU will enter Saturday’s match with two solid wins at the Red Rock Invitational Tournament this past weekend. After beating Cal Poly SLO 74-5 and UNLV 99-0, BYU is in a good position to keep the winning streak going.
