Happy Sione Takitaki/Britton Hogan Day: 16 Days to Kickoff!

The 2016 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 16 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. Since we missed Britton Hogan earlier in the countdown (Hogan will wear #60 this season), we’ll honor him today as well.

Happy Sione Takitaki/Britton Hogan Day!
