BYU confirms Taysom Hill injured; Riley Nelson says he'll start

Six hours after Vanquish The Foe first reported the evaluation of a possibly-serious leg injury to BYU quarterback Taysom Hill, BYU has confirmed his injury:

By simple math, BYU could have run the clock below 20 seconds before 4th down by kneeling the ball three times, but on first down, a quarterback draw was called.

Meanwhile, Jay Drew is also reporting a follow-up of sorts to what we heard from Bronco Mendenhall after the game. Coach Mendenhall said that Riley Nelson was "really close" to playing against Utah State. Drew tweeted this:

So, it looks like we'll be waiting until Monday's standard press conference for any official word. In the mean time, I'll be over here popping antacids like Saul Bloom.
