BYU announcers missed story line

I could not get the USU-BYU football game on my TV. CBS Sports Network is not in many Utah homes. I listened on BYU's radio station.

I tuned in at the third quarter. The BYU announcers were terrible. They never would mention Chuckie Keeton had left the field due to injury early in the game. They seemed oblivious that his leaving was the whole story of the game. They mentioned another USU quarterback and how this quarterback was getting nowhere due to the BYU defense. I was yelling at the radio for the rest of the game, "What happened to Keeton?" They just kept up the play-by-play without ever explaining what happened to Keeton. I had to read about Keeton's injury in The Tribune. Someone needs to tell the BYU announcers that BYU won, but the victory is certainly of much less importance than if the Cougars had beaten USU with its superstar.
