BYU's Taysom Hill to miss bowl game with injury, career ends

PROVO, Utah (AP) Quarterback Taysom Hill will miss the final game of his collegiate career due to injury.

BYU announced Monday that the senior suffered an elbow strain in the regular-season finale Saturday and will not play in the Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 21.

Hill failed to finish four of his five seasons due to injury. The 2016 season was a medical redshirt year after playing just one game in 2015.

Sophomore Tanner Mangum becomes the No. 1 quarterback after starting 12 games and setting freshman records in 2015.

Hill finishes his career No. 4 in school history with 9,744 yards of total offense. His 2,815 career rushing yards are the most by a BYU quarterback. Hill surpassed Steve Young in total touchdowns Saturday and ranks No. 5 in BYU history with 75.
