BYU entered last week’s game at home with Utah St with a 4-0 record. Many projected this independent as their sleeper pick to make the college football playoff. Last week probably the most important college football player to a team in quarterback Taysom Hill was lost for the season to a broken leg. Hill was hurt during the game and BYU was then defeated at home 35-20 as a -21 point favorite to the Utah St Aggies. Hill was probably the most valuable players for any team as he not only was an effective passer hitting on 67% of his throws but he also was the BYU’s leading rusher as he ran for 463 yards on 86 carries for about 5 ½ yards per rush average. The backup quarterback is Christian Stewart and is a senior quarterback. Prior to entering last week’s game Stewart had thrown a total of two passes in a three year career at quarterback. Forced into action last week Stewart completed 10 of 29 passes for 172 yards and three interceptions in defeat. The offense fell apart last week in Hill’s absence as the team finished with four turnovers. Central Florida is entering a new chapter in their history in 2014. In 2013 it was Blake Bortles at quarterback and the Knights not only earned a BCS bowl berth but defeated Baylor in a blowout win. With their two big stars in the NFL the Knights are 2-2 on the year. They began with losses away from home to Penn St by two points and a 28 point loss at Missouri. They then have wins against Bethune Cookman and last week went on the road to beat Houston 17-12 as a +2 point underdog. Under center for Central Florida is sophomore Justin Holman who has completed 54.4% of his throws with six touchdowns and two picks.
