Backup BYU quarterback Christian Stewart is confident — give him that.

He told Daily Herald writer Jared Lloyd, “Every team needs a great No. 2 quarterback. If you look at Utah and Utah State last year, their second-string guys came in and did horrible. I’m not planning on being that guy.”

It’s true Utah’s Adam Schulz was just 1-4 when standing in for Travis Wilson. However, USU’s Darell Garretson was 6-2 as a starter, completing 60 percent of his passes and directing a bowl win over nationally ranked NIU.

Seems the guy at BYU didn’t check “that guy’s” stats.
