PROVO, Utah -- It’s been 36 years since the Utah State Aggies have won in Provo against Brigham Young University.

The Cougars didn’t just lose the game, they also lost their quarterback, Taysom Hill for the rest of the season.

The dream of going undefeated is squashed for the Cougars, they now have to focus on how to recover offensively without their star quarterback.

Hill went down in the second quarter and didn’t come back. Christian Stewart stepped in for Hill for the rest of the game.

“Really difficult to watch Taysom go down,” said BYU football coach Bronco Mendenhall. “Early report it is a broken leg – lower bone in his body. Surgery tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. and he’ll be out for the year. A three- to four-month recovery is what the early sign is.”

The final score was a 35-20 win for the Aggies.

    In today’s football any team that builds it program around a running quarterback is delusional. Mendenhall should be fired. This hapoened to Riley Nelson and to Taysom once before. Its great that Hill can run but to design plays where your team relies on him to win the game doing so means you risk your greatest asset in an unnecessary way. His running skill should be reserved for busted plays and getting out of impossible situations not pound it out football. Show mwsomeone else who plays this way? It always starts at the top….administration and coaching. Shame on you for designing this injury…again!
