Brigham Young just had its season blown up with a loss to Utah State and the loss of dual-threat quarterback Taysom Hill to a broken leg. The Cougars will try to carry on when they meet up with Central Florida for an interesting matchup on Thursday night in Orlando.
With Hill gone BYU now turns to senior Christian Stewart, who in his first significant action last week threw three interceptions. He’ll have his hands full with UCF, which has been hot at home recently, going 10-1 SU and 8-3 ATS over its last 11 games at the place they call the Bouncehouse.
