BYU vs. Portland
BYU beat Portland State 20-6 in Provo. The Cougars were a 30-40 point favorite over the Big Sky team, and so, of course, criticism/analysis began even before the game ended. BYU’s scheduled to play at LSU this weekend, but that will likely change because of Hurricane Harvey.
Utah will host another Big Sky team in North Dakota on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. The Era of Tyler Huntley, sophomore from Florida, begins, as does the era of offensive coordinator Troy Taylor.
Utah safety Chase Hansen acknowledged that the off season can seem like an eternity at times. “When you’re out here working, I think, it seems like it’s taking even longer,” Hansen said as Thursday’s season-opener against North Dakota draws closer. Even so, Hansen also admits to feeling like he’s running out of time. “I’m ready to go. I’m ready for the trainers to say ‘Hey, do your thing’ and I’m going to do my thing,” he said.
