"Riley will start against Idaho State, but it will still be week-to-week," Mendenhall said. "But the way he's currently playing, I'm impressed with. He's making a lot of good plays. I think he will continue to battle and compete. But that doesn't mean tenure or all of the sudden the starting job becomes his regardless of how he plays. It's week-to-week."
Even though BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall said this week that Riley Nelson will start against Idaho State, he added that Nelson has not secured the starting QB job.
