Jordan Love – QB (Utah State)

vs. BYU

  • When: Saturday, November 2 at 10:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Romney Stadium in Logan, UT
  • TV: ESPN 2

Utah State quarterback Jordan Love is one of the most beloved quarterbacks on the 2020 draft class. A lot of scouts and teams believe he has the traits to translate to the NFL. In a league that needs quarterbacks, Love should be a first-round pick in 2020. If the Vikings want to look ahead at the future and find a potential successor to Kirk Cousins, they may pull the trigger on Love and let him sit.

Looking at the production of Jordan Love may turn you away. He is completing just 59.8 percent of his throws with eight touchdowns and nine interceptions. Through seven games, Love has just 1,620 yards. In his only big-time start in college, Love completed just half of his passes with three interceptions against LSU earlier this season. Despite my bashing, there are some things to like about Jordan Love.

Love is strong in the pocket and is not afraid to take a hit while delivering a throw. His size and mobility make him a tough task in the pocket for oncoming rushers. Love is also great at attacking the middle of the field and dissecting the defense. That is why so many scouts believe he is a first-round quarterback.


BYU has a strong defense against the pass, allowing just 188 yards per game through the air. Their focus will be on stopping Love and the Aggie offense.

Love must find ways to exploit the defense if he wants to walk away with a big win at home. He should throw for about 200 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions
