(AP Photo/Young Kwak) PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Tyler Allgeier ran for 191 yards and two touchdowns and BYU beat Washington State 21-19 on Saturday in Washington State’s first game since head coach Nick Rolovich was fired for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccination. Rolovich and four assistants were fired Monday for not complying with the governor’s mandate that all state employees be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Rolovich had requested a religious exemption that was denied Monday, the state’s vaccination deadline. He was replaced for the remainder of the season by Jake Dickert, the defensive coordinator who was elevated to acting head coach. “Our guys had a lot of heart,” Dickert said, praising his team’s “effort and commitment.” “I know it’s been a tough week,” Dickert, in his first college game ever as a head coach, said. “It’s a little bit learning on the fly. I felt it was really smooth. For the most part we operated as a staff.” Asked what it was like to

(AP Photo/Amanda Loman) CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State took a pretty good shot from Utah in the first eight minutes but the Beavers never wavered and responded with an all-around performance that put them a win away from a bowl berth. Luke Musgrave blocked and returned a punt for a touchdown, B.J. Baylor rushed for over 100 yards and a score, and Oregon State rallied from an early deficit to defeat Utah 42-34 on Saturday night. The Beavers (5-2, 3-1 Pac-12), who trailed 24-14 at the half, scored touchdowns on their first three possessions of the second half to take control. One more win and the Beavers will be bowl eligible for the first time since the 2013 season. “What’s in front of us is bigger than going to a bowl game,” fourth-year coach Jonathan Smith said. “And so the mantra is you try to win a game to make the next game bigger and that’s what we did.” Oregon State, the conference leader in rushing yards per

Aggies win nailbiter as Rams’ last second field goal misses left – Cache Valley Daily

LOGAN—Field goals were the difference in Utah State’s 26-24 win over Colorado State Friday night. While twelve of the Aggies’ points came from four Connor Coles field goals, it was a missed field goal from CSU in the final seconds that secured the victory. As the Rams lined up for the final kick, Aggie head coach Blake Anderson said he was wondering how his opponent even got in that position. Just four minutes earlier, USU had the ball and a nine-point lead. Since that time CSU had picked up a touchdown, forced a USU punt in the final minute and moved the ball 61 yards into field goal range. “They did a great job maneuvering that drive to get themselves in that position,” Anderson said. But the kick went too far left, and Anderson came away with another stress-inducing win. The win moved USU to 5-2 overall and 3-1 in conference play. Four of the five wins were within four points or less. Every win until Friday night’s had been a comeback of ten points or more. “I would have loved to have seen us get some more points on the board late and put this thing out of reach

Aggies and Rams to battle for Mountain Division supremacy Friday night – Cache Valley Daily

FILE PHOTO: Full Maverik Stadium. Photo by Robert K. Scott LOGAN—College football comes early to Cache Valley this week. Division standings are on the line as Colorado State brings its two-game win streak into Utah State territory for a homecoming game Friday night. Race for the top of the Mountain Division Utah State football has led at halftime in zero of its six games so far this season. Going into the fourth quarter, the Aggies have led once. Yet, the team is 4-2 overall and 2-1 in conference play. Air Force beat Boise State Saturday night, which means that the only team to beat USU in conference play now has more conference losses than Utah State. That is huge for USU’s chances moving forward, because the Aggies once again control their own destiny. Still, it doesn’t mean too much with a half of a season of football to be played if the winning doesn’t continue. Colorado State comes to Logan with a 3-3 record, but in conference are 2-0. Whichever team wins Friday night will at least have a temporary seat atop the Mountain Division. Current Mountain Division standings: School – Conference Record – Overall Record Colorado State 2-0 3-3
