Utah State football isn't the younger brother ... Next » 2 of 10 « Prev
Some fans have referred to Utah State as BYU's "little brother," but they don't know their history.

The Utah State "Farmers" played the University of Utah in 1892. That's four years before BYA played its first game in 1896 and 30 years before BYU's first official game. So whatever names Cougar fans throw at the Aggies, Utah State owns the older football team.

Article quote: "So, why did Edwards pick USU over BYU? Cows. “If I’d gone to the Y., I would have had to live at home, and my job would have been milking the cows," Edwards told BYUCougars.com. "I was sick of milking those two darned cows. I’d have gone to Utah to get away from ‘em. Well maybe not Utah, but I wanted to get away.”"

Now THAT is classic LaVell Edwards! Too funny!

Being out of the wilderness in football allows such stories to be told. Thanks for including it. Go Aggies.
