Happy Johnny Tapusoa Day: 42 Days to Kickoff!

The 2017 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 42 days- EXACTLY six weeks- until BYU’s season opener against 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.

Happy Johnny Tapusoa Day!
