Jackson McChesney’s performance against Idaho State is another indicator that BYU could be solid at running back going forward

Provo • While the focus during BYU’s final home game of the season was rightly on the Cougar seniors, a freshman also did some celebrating.

Running back Jackson McChesney came in during the fourth quarter against Idaho State. He wasn’t the only backup or redshirt player to see action on Saturday — due to a sizable lead over the FCS opponent — but McChesney may have shown what’s in store for the running backs for the next few seasons.

It was also the Highland native’s first chance to play — and he did it in LaVell Edwards Stadium, in front of his family.
