A lot of Virginia Cavalier fans will be interested to see how much highly touted running back Taquan 'Smoke' Mizzell plays against BYU, and what the freshman looks like.
Mizzell is Virginia's first 5-star recruit in eight years.
He's expected to share time in the backfield with Kevin Parks and Khalek Shepherd.

Virginia will host BYU Saturday at 3:30 PM at Scott Stadium.
