Boise State is gearing up for a huge game Friday night in Provo, where they will take on regional rivals BYU.
The BYU Cougars have struggled this season to keep a healthy quarterback on the field, reaching way deep into their roster (we’re talking fifth string here folks) to find someone who can suit up on Friday.
The Cougars’ quarterback carousel could benefit the team as it throws a brand new wrinkle at Boise State. Usually, a defense might have to prepare for two quarterbacks at most, but this week, the Broncos have to be ready for five.
In the first five games they played this season, BYU has played three different quarterbacks, but regardless of who starts on Friday, Bronco defensive coordinator, Andy Avalos, says his team better be dialed in for the challenge.
"Obviously injuries and stuff like that we are getting to that point in the season and everybody has to deal with that stuff,” said Avalos. “They have good players they have good backups especially for some of the schemes that they want to do and you see it throughout college football you better come ready to play every single week it doesn't matter what your record is it doesn't matter what conference or what stadium you play in and all that. Every week it's about the process and we have to put our focus on that every single week.”
