Date:

BYU redshirt junior RB Trey Dye left in the first quarter of Saturday's game against Mississippi State.

Dye limped off to the locker room and is reportedly now sporting a walking boot and crutches. His afternoon appears to be over.
Oct 14 - 2:07 PM

BYU sophomore WR Talon Shumway didn't travel to Saturday's game against Mississippi State.

No word on why he's staying back in Utah as yet. Shumway has 15 catches for 162 yards on the year, easily pacing the team's receivers. Of course, TE Matt Bushman is the most targeted Cougar in the aerial attack, and he'll see even more balls on Saturday.
Oct 14 - 11:29 AM

BYU junior QB Tanner Mangum is listed as the starter for the Mississippi State game.

For the first time in several weeks, the Cougars know well in advance that they will have their starting quarterback available. Mangum ended up starting after being a game-time decision against Boise State last week. Before that, he had been out since injuring his ankle against Utah in BYU's third game. Joe Critchlow "or" Beau Hoge are listed as Mangum's co-backups.
Oct 10 - 4:34 PM

BYU sophomore RB KJ Hall (arm) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Boise State.

Hall (5'9/175) injured his arm in a loss to LSU during the second week of the season. He has not played since that contest. Ula Tolutau and Squally Canada will continue to see the majority of carries in BYU's watching-paint-dry offense.
Oct 6 - 7:55 PM

ESPN's Molly McGrath reports that BYU junior QB Tanner Mangum (ankle) is likely to start against Boise State on Friday.

With Beau Hoge ruled out, true frosh Joe Critchlow will back Mangum up. Mangum has been out since injuring his ankle against Utah in BYU's third game. He threw for 466 yards (54.4% completions) with a 2/4 TD/INT ratio before going down.
Oct 6 - 1:47 PM

BYU redshirt sophomore QB Beau Hoge (concussion) will miss Friday's game versus Boise State.

Hoge suffered the injury in last Friday's loss to Utah State. Tanner Mangum is reportedly set to return on Friday to take back over quarterbacking duties.
Oct 6 - 12:46 PM

BYU junior QB Tanner Mangum (ankle) has been practicing this week.

Mangum has been out of action since injuring his ankle against Utah in Week 2. Beau Hoge has been filling in for him in the interim. Consider the junior gunslinger a game-time decision for Friday's game against Boise State.
Oct 5 - 7:27 PM

BYU redshirt sophomore QB Beau Hoge was knocked out of the game against Utah State on Friday with an undisclosed injury.

Hoge was 5-for-9 for 95 yards with two scores and a pick when he left the game. Third-string QB Koy Detmer, Jr. took over for Hoge, as Tanner Mangum (ankle) still hasn't been cleared to play. We'll have more when more information is presented.
Sep 29 - 11:07 PM

BYU redshirt sophomore QB Beau Hoge will likely start under center for the Cougars in Friday's game against Utah State.

Hoge (6'1/210) got the start in the 49-6 demolition loss to Wisconsin on 9/16, and Tanner Mangum (ankle) still hasn't been able to practice this week. The BYU offense has been atrocious in 2017, but they'll face one of the weaker defenses on their schedule on Friday when they travel to Logan.
Sep 29 - 6:23 PM

BYU redshirt sophomore QB Beau Hoge completed 11-of-20 passes for 111 yards and two interceptions in Saturday's 40-6 disgracing at the hands of Wisconsin.

Hoge drew the start in place of Tanner Mangum, who could miss a month or more with an ankle injury. It was a disaster. Same could be said for BYU's offense as a whole, with the Cougars managing just 192 total yards in the embarrassing defeat. They'll have a much-needed bye next weekend, with a contest against Utah State showing on the schedule for the following Friday.
Sep 16 - 7:06 PM

BYU redshirt sophomore QB Beau Hoge will start Saturday's game against Wisconsin.

Hoge is going to get the first crack at the starting gig while Tanner Mangum rehabs his ankle injury. Mangum is expected to miss at least one month. BYU OC Ty Detmer said that "nothing changes with our offense" while Mangum is out. The Salt Lake Tribune expects the team to utilize Hoge’s legs "much in the mold of former QB Taysom Hill." The Cougars have had no success moving the ball through the air this year. A ground-heavy approach would make sense.
Sep 16 - 12:26 PM

BYU junior QB Tanner Mangum (ankle) will miss at least a month of game action.

Mangum rolled his ankle late in last week's loss to Utah. He's been seen this week in a walking boot with a scooter. We've been given no other details about his injury.
Sep 16 - 11:40 AM

The Salt Lake Tribune's Jay Drew writes that it is "pretty obvious" that BYU junior QB Tanner Mangum (ankle) will not play against Wisconsin on Saturday.

Mangum rolled his ankle near the end of this past weekend's loss to Utah. He has required the use of a walking boot and a scooter during the practice week. Drew insinuated that this could possibly be a long-term injury, though the team has not confirmed this notion. Beau Hoge will start against the Badgers if Mangum is, indeed, unable to give it a go. Health aside, Mangum has struggled mightily in three games this season, throwing for 466 yards (54.4% completions) with a 2/4 TD/INT ratio.
Sep 13 - 9:34 PM

BYU junior QB Tanner Mangum completed 21-of-39 passes for 170 yards with a touchdown and three picks in a 19-13 loss to Utah on Saturday.

That's back-to-back-to-back games in which Mangum has struggled to get the ball down the field and move the offense. His line is actually misleading, as the touchdown and yardage mostly came with Utah holding a comfortable 19 point lead. At some point, you have to wonder if the Cougars will think about making a quarterback change.
Sep 10 - 2:04 AM

BYU junior QB Tanner Mangum completed 12-of-24 yards for 102 yards and an interception in a 27-0 loss to LSU.

Mangum (6'3/220) wasn't great against Portland State last week, but he was Aaron Rodgers in that start compared to this one. He couldn't push the ball down the field at all, and if he did make completions, they were dinks-and-dunks that still left the Cougars in long-yardage situations. Mangum has shown flashes of brilliance in his time at BYU, but they aren't evident right now.
