Happy Austin McChesney/Cody Stewart/Andrew Mikkelsen Day: 29 Days to Kickoff!

The 2016 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 29 days until BYU’s season opener in Arizona. Today also marks the opening practice of Fall Camp 2016! 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.

Happy Austin McChesney/Cody Stewart/Andrew Mikkelsen Day!
