I'm hearing that the starting QB (hall) is out this Saturday as well as the backup QB (Romney)
So the 3rd stringer freshman QB will probably be starting against Boise state this Friday

If I had to guess, that’s what happens. Maybe Hall dresses as 3rd string, emergency QB.
Also, Conover is anything but a young Freshman. Dude was part of the 2019 recruiting class. He grayshirted, went on a COVID shortened mission, then redshirted last year while he ran the scout team. The second half last week was his first real football in years, and it showed. Having a full week to prepare as the starter should help tremendously. Plus Boise is not even in the top 100 in run defense. Algeier might run for a mile.

Ya Im excited to see conover and think he will do great. FWIW Hall was my hope to win the starting job this fall but Conover was my second choice. So many weapons on this team to get the ball to. Both nacuas, pau'u, romney, rex, holker, katoa, algier, wake. Then you have some other guys that are really good but there just isn't opportunity for like keanu hill, chris jackson, carter wheat, chase roberts, mcchesney, ropati, miles davis (when he gets back from injury which should be soon). BYU is loaded at wide receiver, running back, and tight end. Plus 3 really good QB's and an amazing O'line. Imagine if Dax milne, brady christensen, hodge, and zach wilson would have stayed for this season.
Kalani and staff have done a great job.
Another note on the game saturday: I was looking into their injury situation and they are pretty banged up. Where they are really hurting is their offensive line. They are using a 3rd string center and have other backups playing on the Oline. I read that they only had 7 Olineman really available last week.

I think BYU dominates the trenches on both sides of the ball (like they have most of the year) and wins comfortably.
I will be at the game btw. First game in a lot of years.

I think an undefeated season would’ve given them an outside chance of making the playoffs but now there is ZERO. I miss it when we would have at least one football team show out.

Those fumbles lost the game.

Also, seemed like they (BYU coaches) were doing everything they could to protect Hall. Not letting him run.
If he isn't going to be allowed to run then they shouldn't play him. Good dual threat ability is what makes him good. Take that away and he isn't nearly as effective
Should have just started Conover

Can someone tell me why Rising wasn’t the starting qb to start the year? Holy cow he’s light years better then Brewer

They weren’t sure he would be ready to start the season so I imagine he wasn’t healthy enough to fully compete for the job either. Still….giving the Brewer the job has cost them at least one win so far.

It’s crazy, but the Utes are right back in the thick of things. Next week versus Arizona St. is huge. Whoever wins this game has a huge edge on the rest of the teams in the South. Pac12 baby.

Having had a torn labrum repair myself, everybody needs to understand that Rising’s recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. The fact that he’s back to throwing long-yardage bombs less than a year after having it repaired blows me away.

I can’t fault them for starting Brewer. But after a few games, it became obvious that Brewer was outright gun shy and struggling. I don’t even think he’s entered the portal yet, has he? I think he may have left football outright. I think that’s because he’s figured out he just can’t do it anymore. Too scary, and too dangerous for a guy who has had serious concussion issues in the past.

Can’t do anything about the past, but can certainly move forward. BYU and San Diego State both played great games and deserved to win. Kudos to them.

Next game against Arizona State is for all the marbles. Looking forward to it!
