r to see off Burns 10

  • 15 Apr
    PROVO, Utah -- The wait is over for Tanner Mangum.The BYU sophomore quarterback sat most of 2016 despite setting several freshman records in 2015 after Taysom Hill suffered a season-ending foot injury. Hill won the job back as a fifth-year senior, but will miss the final game of his career due to an elbow injury. Mangum will start the Poinsettia Bowl against Wyoming (8-5) on Dec. 21 and take over what should be his team for the foreseeable future.Mangum doesnt see the game as a launch pad for next season, but he has been patiently waiting for this moment.It was a test for me to keep that long-term perspective, Mangum told The Associated Press on Tuesday. While youre going through that, it can be tough to see that. It can be tough as a competitor wanting to compete. But you have to learn how to be a teammate and learn how to support your teammates and be there for them through the ups and the downs.Looking back, Im definitely grateful for the experience I had and the lessons I learned. I think its helped prepare me now to be able to play in this last bowl game and help the team finish strong.Sitting behind Hill allowed Mangum to learn the new pro-style scheme implemented by offensive coordinator Ty Detmer and the first-year coaching staff at BYU (8-4). He gained a better understanding of how to be selfless and push himself in practices despite limited reps and the unlikelihood of seeing the field. That can be a humbling experience after throwing for 3,337 yards and 23 touchdowns as a freshman.Those are times where, mentally, youre kind of learning on the run, Detmer said. (Mangums) been on the headsets every game, so hes hearing the end-game, play-by-play coaching points. Overall, that maturity level, having an offseason that he didnt have the year before, all of it has really played into his favor.With the new system, kind of learn through someone else. And then be ready to go now. ... Obviously, hes going to be a great player here and were excited that hes here and a part of it. When he looks back on it, I think hell really appreciate the time that he had to sit and learn and listen and take it all in and not have to take the bumps and bruises while youre doing it.Mangum said the game has slowed down this season and that has helped his confidence. He focused on recognizing defensive coverages and being able to audible at the line of scrimmage. Last year, Mangum was thrust into the starting lineup just months after returning from a two-year Mormon mission.The offense wont change dramatically with Mangum under center, Detmer said, despite the different styles of play. Hill was more of an athlete with the ability to create with his legs. Mangum prefers to remain in the pocket as a pure passer.Obviously, quarterbacks have different preferences and different things that they like, Detmer said. So, well try to stick with what Tanner feels most comfortable with, especially not having the most reps this year. But you also look at what you feel like he does the best and try to pair those two.Senior receiver Mitchell Juergens added, We know Tanners going to sling the rock. As receivers, we just have to be ready to catch and make plays and make his job easier.Still, BYU players are disappointed in the way the Hill era ended. His 75 total touchdowns rank No. 5 in school history and his 9,744 yards of total offense rank No. 4. Hills 2,815 rushing yards are the most by a quarterback in BYU history.---More college football http://collegefootball.ap.org Air Max 270 Destockage .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago.

Surrey 332 for 4 (Burns 122, Sibley 99) vs HampshireScorecard Rory Burns, the Surrey opening batsman, struck his first century of the season as the visitors made light work on a flat track at the Ageas Bowl.Burns, who became the 2,000th Surrey player to reach three figures in first-class cricket, looked at ease during his 144 ball stay before knocking his 17th boundary to take him to three figures.Hampshire, who toiled for nearly two thirds of the day, finally had something to cheer about in the evening as they pegged the away side back somewhat with a handful of wickets.The early stages of this match was always going to rely heavily on who won the toss, with the track looking impeccably hard and flat. Gareth Batty, just as predictably, refused the offer of bowling first before winning the coin flip - the skipper has yet to lose a toss this season.Burns, with the equally unimpeachable Dominic Sibley, saw off the first session with ease - the pair already up to 72 in the opening hour, Hampshire already being forced to use all four seamers.Burns quickly moved past 4,500 runs for his first-class career, before reaching his 25th format fifty at an almost run a ball 54 deliveries. He continued to cash in after lunch to climb to three figure, playing the aggressor to Sibleys watchful style, in 144 balls.Sibley, who passed his half century in almost same amount of time it took Burns to reach a ton, 141 balls, was waiting patiently ffor the poor ball to come along.ddddddddddddThe partnership appeared impenetrable with seemingly every option exhausted - before Mason Crane produced a corker to see off Burns 10 balls before tea.The young leg spinner pitching one outside off stump and back of a length to the left hander to turn back to cramp Burns up for space - edging low to Sean Ervine at first slip.Crane continued his troubling turners to get Zafar Ansari before he had got going - tempting the al-rounder down the track before Lewis McManus smartly swivelled and stumped.Soon after the new ball was taken, which was the first thing to cause Sibley a sweat in his heavy cable knit jumper.Reaching 99, the only other time he has a Championship century was on his debut when he bagged a record 242, he was bowled by a Gareth Berg delivery which moved back off the seam to crunch into the off stump.Berg, who finished the day the pick of the bowlers with two for 47, then had a short and tempered battle with Jason Roy - the bowler, after missing the outside edge twice and having an lbw shout turned down, finally got his man leg before.Quietly, as the wickets tumbled around him, Australian international Aaron Finch teed off in entertaining fashion - pilfering a quick 50 before the close to stand overnight on 56, his team on top at 332 for 4.
