BYU spring scrimmage: Projected starters held out, others get the chance to shine
Kristin Murphy, Deseret News
PROVO — BYU's spring scrimmage, featuring a lot of players most fans have never heard of, just concluded at LaVell Edwards Stadium.
A few thousand fans turned out on a warm, overcast day in Provo. Most of the Cougars' projected starters were held out due to injuries or for precautionary reasons.
The Cougars ran a little more than 30 plays, with four different quarterbacks — James Lark, Taysom Hill, Ammon Olsen and Alex Kuresa — each getting a couple of reps.
The offense didn't score a touchdown against the defense and surrendered a pair of turnovers. Kuresa threw an interception to safety Mike Hague and a fumble by running back Adam Hine. The fumble was recovered by defensive back Robbie Buckner.
Jray Galeai nearly had a pick six of Lark, but he dropped the ball. A few plays later, Lark nearly connected with a wide-open wide receiver, Skyler Ridley, for what would have been a touchdown, but the pass was dropped.
