I hate to say it, but I feel like this game is meaningless for BYU.
Game Outcome 1: Taysom comes out and continues to miss wide open receivers. The defense clamps down on the Blue Raiders because they don't have a quarterback who can throw, but the offense struggles mightily and BYU wins by a score of something like 20-13. We learn nothing. Taysom still can't throw, and the defense is able to shut down at Conference-USA team. Good for them.
Game Outcome 2: Taysom throws lights out. He's hitting guys at a 70% clip, BYU wins by seven touchdowns, etc. etc. We learn nothing, because it's a Conference-USA team. Good for Taysom.
So here we are. I'll watch the game, but I don't expect to feel any differently about this team afterwards than I do now.
Amazing what losing four in a row to your rival does to your fanbase.
