As per multiple media reports from Colorado Springs, Hank Bachmeier did not make the trip with the team and is OUT for the game. It appears starting safety JL Skinner also missed the trip. Neither were kept out for disciplinary reasons.
Recent USC transfer Jack Sears is expected to start at QB, and Evan Tyler should get the nod at safety.
Big story potentially. I don’t see Hank Bachmeier during early warmups. It’s Sears, Fennegan and Peters for Boise State.— B.J. Rains (@BJRains) October 31, 2020
Boise State QB Hank Bachmeier is out for today's game at Air Force.— Ron Counts (@Ron_BroncoBeat) October 31, 2020
There it is. And thus why Sears was such a big addition.— Dave Southorn (@davesouthorn) October 31, 2020
If Bachmeier is COVID-related, even bigger with BYU on Friday. https://t.co/cO1HdzuUre
