Will BYU face former Utes QB Charlie Brewer in October?

After transferring from Utah, Brewer has reportedly won the starting job at Liberty University.

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Utes quarterback Charlie Brewer (12) as the Utah Utes host the Weber State Wildcats in Salt Lake City on Thursday, Sept. 2, 2021.

Charlie Brewer arrived at the University of Utah with tons of promise at the quarterback position. But he left the Utes unceremoniously after playing just 11 quarters and ultimately getting benched in favor of Cam Rising.

But Brewer might still get a chance at redemption after last year’s loss to BYU.

Brewer’s debut with the Utes went swimmingly on Sept. 2, 2021. He threw two touchdown passes and went 19-of-27 in a 40-17 win over Weber State.

But nine days later, against the Cougars in Provo, his production dipped. He went just 15-of-26 with one touchdown pass, and was sacked twice.

The next week, Brewer was sacked three times and threw an interception before Rising entered the game for him.

Brewer starting against the Cougars could be a chance for him to seek some revenge against the last Utah team he faced before jettisoning to Virginia.

Brewer recently addressed the quarterback competition at Liberty, saying it’s been “super competitive” and “off to a good start.” He was among a group of four quarterbacks vying for that starting job.

“It feels normal to me to earn your right to play,” Brewer told local media.

Brewer spent four seasons at Baylor before transferring to Utah.
