Not so fast! Corbin Kaufusi may play tonight versus Utah

NCAA Football: California at Brigham Young Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

***UPDATE*** Coach Sitake announced that Corbin will start tonight and then have surgery and miss the bowl game. Sitake also said that Squally Canada, Lopini Canada and Gunner Romney will all be out. Look for Riley Burt and Matt Hadley to be the two main running backs.

After Kalani Sitake announced last week that Senior DE Corbin Kaufusi will be out for the remainder of the year with a foot/ankle injury, it appears that Corbin may give it a go in the Holy War. Here is an Instagram Post from Corbin with the caption, “Till the wheels fall off”

Corbin is also listed as the co-starter at DE on Utah’s official gameday notes after not being on BYU’s depth chart earlier in the week.

Additionally, Jake Hatch of 1280 Sports reported that Corbin has practiced with the team this week.

With all that in mind, it looks like Corbin will give it a go as BYU tries to snap a 7-game losing streak to Utah. Coaches likely left it up to Corbin about whether or not he will play tonight.

BYU players REALLY want to win this game, apparently. Let’s hope our boys can snap the seven game winning streak tonight.

We’ll update this story as more info becomes official.
