SALT LAKE CITYBYU backup Jacob Conover replaced Jaren Hall at quarterback during the Cougars’ regular season finale against the Stanford Cardinal.

The Cardinal hosted the Cougars at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, November 26.

With 7:08 left in the third quarter, Hall came up limping after the Cougars failed to convert on 4th & 1 from the Stanford 21-yard line. Hall went to the sideline and into the medical tent.

After forcing the Cardinal to punt, Conover entered the game at quarterback for the Cougars with 3:16 remaining in the quarter.

Conover has yet to attempt a pass this season in limited action.

During his BYU career, the redshirt freshman is 5/10 passing for 45 yards. He’s also run one time for five yards.

The Cougars entered the game with a 6-5 record.

BYU’s game against Stanford is broadcast on FS1, KSLSports.com, and KSL NewsRadio.

BYU vs. Stanford

There isn’t much on the line in this game. BYU, an FBS Independent, is 6-5 and has already clinched bowl eligibility. Stanford has navigated through another disappointing season as they enter the season finale at 3-8.

But despite this game not impacting the national landscape, it could be a matchup that provides some classic “Pac-12 After Dark” entertainment.

BYU comes into the matchup as winners of their past two games against Boise State and Utah Tech. Stanford is currently on a four-game losing streak and is in danger of a second consecutive 3-9 season.

A side note to this game that should be interesting to follow is the crowd. Stanford has been known to have poor showings in attendance numbers. Last month, Stanford offered a “free trial” to get more people into the stands. Don’t be surprised if a lot of BYU fans took advantage of that offer and scooped up tickets.
