Heaps has broken rib

It has been revealed, that true freshman quarterback Jake Heaps suffered a broken rib in the first half of the the Utah game in late November. Heaps continued to play in the game, and gave BYU a chance to win the game in the wanning seconds of the heart breaker, all with a broken rib under his non throwing arms shoulder blade.

Heaps will have to compete
 for his job next spring
Heaps also played with the broken rib in the cougars 52-24 blowout of UTEP in the New Mexico bowl. One couldn't have guessed, however, considering his offensive MVP trophy and the Cougars dominance on the offensive side.

Heaps ended his freshman season tossing 4 touchdowns, 3 to fellow freshman Cody Hoffman, completing 72 percent of his passes for 264 yards.

It has also been announced that Heaps will have to compete for his job next spring, with then senior Riley Nelson. One would think, considering head coach Bronco Mendenhalls statement, "might be the best ever," of cougar QB's, he has an upper hand in the matchup.

Not to mention is stellar performance in the last month of the season.
