Happy Austin Brasher/Beau Tanner Day: 84 Days to Kickoff!

The 2016 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 84 days- EXACTLY 12 weeks from today- until BYU’s season opener in Arizona. Each day we highlight the player or two that wear that day’s number on their jerseys. If you check back each day, by the end of the summer you’ll know every player on BYU’s 2016 roster.
