Happy Bracken El-Bakri Day: 68 Days to Kickoff!

The 2017 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 68 days until BYU’s season opener against the Vikings of Portland State. 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 2017 roster. Since there is no #68 on the current roster, today we’ll honor a returned missionary joining the team.

Happy Bracken El-Bakri Day!
