Blue roundup: Nelson, Tebow comparisons continue

It was quite a weekend for BYU.

There was the dramatic, come-from-behind victory in the Armed Forces Bowl sandwiched between the Cougars' first two basketball games as members of the West Coast Conference. BYU fell at Saint Mary's, but bounced back with a big win over San Diego.

Once again, quarterback Riley Nelson proved that he knows how to win games. Is Nelson the new Tim Tebow of college football?

In hoops, forward Brandon Davies is on a tear lately, scoring a career-high 28 points against Saint Mary's and pulling down a career-high 22 rebounds against San Diego.

And, finally, former BYU star Jimmer Fredette is learning to shoot against taller defenders.
