Not only did BYU lose to Toledo, but it appears that Zach Wilson will miss some time. Wilson hurt his hand on the penultimate possession, forcing Jaren Hall into action.
From Kalani Sitake post game to BYUtv: “Looks like we’ll have a new quarterback next game. Jaren Hall will be our quarterback (against USF).”
More from Kalani:
Kalani Sitake in postgame on Jaren Hall: "There's some things we can do with him at quarterback that gives us a little bit of an advantage. I'm glad we have another week to get ready because it looks like he's probably going to be the guy going against South Florida."#BYU— Mitch Harper (@Mitch_Harper) September 28, 2019
Jaren Hall has played in every game this season, and was the starting QB during Spring ball while Zach was recovering from shoulder surgery. Jaren is the son of former BYU running back Kalin Hall and will become the first African-American starting QB in BYU history.
One silver lining is that Hall and the staff will have a bye week to prepare to get the game plan tailored to Hall’s skill sets. We’ll likely see more zone reads and designed QB runs with Hall behind center.
The severity of Zach’s injury is unknown, but it could be fairly serious since Kalani knew post game that Zach would miss the USF game. Kalani elaborated to Wrubell that it could be serious.
