BYU Football vs. New Mexico State 09

One of the more complex questions facing the BYU offense is how the running back situation will play out. Squarely in the thick of the discussion is Lopini Katoa, a sophomore who ended up leading the team with 423 yards on 76 carries with eight touchdowns. He did get hurt, however, and the Cougars added a couple of graduate transfers to the position as well. This could be a big year for Katoa -- or he could find himself buried on the depth chart with limited opportunities.
