BYU Quarterback Taysom Hill Is Out for Season

According to College Spun, BYU Quarterback Taysom Hill is out for the season. He is believed to have a Lisfranc injury.

The Injury is unfortunate as Hill missed last season due to injury as well. The Cougars jumped out to an early lead against Nebraska, but star quarterback Taysom Hill left the game with an injury. Hill was 21-of-34 for 268 yards and one touchdown. He also had 72 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

In Hill’s absence, BYU beat Nebraska on a Hail Mary. BYU upset Nebraska with this Hail Mary touchdown as time expired. The Cougars were down by one point with one second to go as the back-up quarterback threw this wild Hail Mary pass. Officials reviewed the play but confirmed that it was a touchdown

Nebraska came back in the game and had the lead late in the fourth quarter. BYU backup quarterback Tanner Mangum led the team down to midfield. Mangum threw the ball up in the air and Mitch Matthews caught the ball right at the goal line for the touchdown. Mangum was 7-of-11 for 111 yards and one touchdown.

Tanner Mangum will likely be the BYU starting quarterback going forward.
