Provo • The growing number of BYU fans who want to see a change at starting quarterback won't get their wish this week.
Coach Bronco Mendenhall gave Riley Nelson a vote of confidence after practice Monday, saying the senior will start Saturday's 1:30 p.m. MDT game against Notre Dame on national television and discounting the notion that another multiple-turnover performance would be cause for yanking the fiery leader.
"I really don't [envision a scenario where Nelson would be pulled]," Mendenhall said. "I think Riley is improving our team. There was a lot of that through three and a half quarters [vs. Oregon State]. A few decisions were not wise. But there was a lot of stuff where he answered touchdown for touchdown for a long time. I am kind of focusing on that point. But we do need to take better care of the football."
