Fennegan starting for the bowl game?

In a roller-coaster season full of twists and turns, BYU is bracing for one final ride — but will a new face be in the lead car? Redshirt freshman quarterback Cade Fennegan, a Boise State transfer who hasn’t taken a single game snap in 25 months, is preparing to make his Cougars debut against SMU next Saturday, Dec. 17, in the New Mexico Bowl (5:30 p.m., ABC).

Barring a miracle, Jaren Hall’s right ankle injury on a broken play against Stanford will keep him from playing in what was expected to be his final game at BYU before declaring for the NFL draft. Jacob Conover, another redshirt freshman quarterback, finished the game against the Cardinal, but entered the transfer portal Monday.

With Hall sidelined, backup quarterbacks Sol-Jay Maiava-Peters and Nick Billoups are also getting reps in practice, but even Fennegan’s limited playing time at Boise State has him better equipped for prime-time television.

In fact, Fennegan could have played ahead of Conover against Stanford, and even some during October when Hall played through a shoulder injury, had he not been mending from his own ankle injury. However, back at full health, the 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-handed rifleman is good to go.
