  Ron Tiavaasue's time as a Utah State Aggie is over. The tight end, who transferred to Utah State over the summer, has entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer, according to Rivals. Listed at 6-foot-3, 270 pounds, the Auckland, New Zealand, native played sparingly for the Aggies this season - per ESPN, Tiavaasue recorded a single tackle this year - and has been off the USU roster since the Aggies' loss to rival BYU.

The former Snow College Badger - he played in Ephraim in 2018 and 2019 - was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school, with offers from Southern Illinois, Southeastern Louisiana, New Mexico State, Louisiana Monroe, Akron, North Texas, North Dakota State and Central Arkansas, per 247 Sports. After two years at Snow, Tiavaasue transferred to Missouri State in January 2021 and played in all seven of the Bears' spring games, totaling seven receptions for 74 yards. Last season, Tiavaasue played in all 12 games for Missouri State, starting seven. He recorded 14 catches for 173 yards and a pair of touchdowns. - Deseret News

  Third-string quarterback Bishop Davenport, making his collegiate debut, scored on a 4-yard run in the third quarter to give Utah State the lead for good and the Aggies defeated Colorado State 17-13 on Saturday. Davenport, a true freshman, made his collegiate debut after quarterbacks Cooper Legas (concussion) and Levi Williams (heel) were sidelined in the first half. Davenport led a pair of eight-play drives in the third quarter that ended with Connor Coles' game-tying 48-yard field goal and Davenport's scramble into the end zone. Michael Boyle's 35-yard field goal cut the lead to 17-13 early in the fourth quarter but an interception by Guryan Hall Jr. ended the Rams' final drive.

Legas' 32-yard touchdown pass to Justin McGriff had given Utah State (3-4, 2-1 Mountain West Conference) a 7-3 lead but Avery Morrow's 26-yard run put Colorado State (1-5, 1-1) on top 10-7 at halftime. Calvin Tyler Jr. ran for 129 yards on 24 carries for the Aggies. Colorado State was also going with a third-stringer making his first collegiate start in redshirt freshman walk-on Giles Pooler, who threw for 144 yards. No. 1 quarterback Clay Millen is still out with a shoulder injury and Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi started last week. Morrow had 116 yards on 27 carries. - Utah State/AP College Football
