In news that can have a big impact on Saturday’s game between WVU and BYU, quarterback Kedon Slovis will not get the start.
Kevin Reynolds of the Salt Lake Tribune was first with report. Backup quarterback Jake Retzlaff is expected to start.
According to Reynolds’ report, Slovis has been dealing with nagging injuries the last few weeks and they will now force him to miss time.

This development is disappointing to West Virginia fans who were looking forward to getting revenge on Slovis for last year’s Backyard Brawl when Slovis was at Pitt.
The Mountaineers themselves, especially one veteran member of the defense, voiced that Slovis being with the Cougars added an extra incentive for this week’s game during press conferences on Monday.
To this point on the season, Slovis has thrown for 1,716 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions.
