BYU down both of its starting cornerbacks

For quite some time there's been rumors of BYU's starting cornerbacks Roberson Daniel and Jordan Johnson being suspended for tomorrow night's UConn game. I've been waiting for some official confirmation and thanks to Jeff Call of the Deseret News, that has happened.

BYU has confirmed that Jordan Johnson and Rob Daniel did not make the trip to East Hartford for tomorrow's game.

It has to be an especially emotional time for Johnson, who hails from Springfield. There were stories early in preseason camp that Johnson would be able play against the Huskies since he'd have so many friends and family coming to the game but obviously that is not the case.

UConn's strongest position coming into the season could very well be receiver with seniors Geremy Davis and Deshon Foxx joined by a talented group of young receivers. Now the Cougars will try to match up with UConn's receivers without their top two corners. If there is a silver lining, there have been reports that Daniel and Johnson spent training camp working with the second-team defense so BYU has been preparing for this situation.
