Happy Kai Nacua/McCoy Hill/Tanner Mangum Day: 12 Days to Kickoff!

The 2015 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 12 days until BYU’s season opener. 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. McCoy Hill is battling a foot injury, but is among the walk-on players expected to re-join the team when classes begin on August 31.
