Backup quarterback Riley Nelson led the team to an exciting finish over in-state rival Utah State on Friday night. No longer are fans only talking about his abs of steel, but more his stellar performance on the field (although Nelson’s hair-do is a close second, and gaining. Only at BYU, right?).
I’m in the Keep-Jake-Heaps-As-The-Starter Camp. He’ll come around. Sports is mental and he’s in a funk, to say the least. Also, Heaps is still a young kid learning. It’ll click eventually — and perhaps Jake sitting on the bench watching Nelson carry the team on Friday might expedite that.
