Happy Garrett Juergens/Rickey Shumway/Chris Wilcox Day: 23 Days to Kickoff!

The 2016 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 23 days 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. Chris Wilcox will wear #32 this year, but since his day has already passed, we’ll honor him today as well.

Happy Garrett Juergens/Rickey Shumway/Chris Wilcox Day!
