Happy Troy Warner/Beau Tanner/Akile Davis Day: 1 Day to Kickoff!

The 2017 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 1 day 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. Beau Tanner recently changed his number from #1 to #33, but we didn’t want to leave him off the countdown, so we’ll honor him today as well.

Happy Troy Warner/Beau Tanner/Akile Davis Day!
