Happy Austin Heder/Patrick Palau Day: 42 Days to Kickoff!

The 2015 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 42 days until BYU’s season opener – exactly SIX weeks from today. Each day we highlight the player or two that wear that day’s number on their jerseys. If you check back with us each day, by the end of the summer you’ll know every player on BYU’s roster in 2015.
