Loyal Cougars

BYU Basketball Music Vidtaculars

Athletic departments put in a lot of work to try and pump up fans and students to attend sporting events — often through the use of “hype” or “sizzle” videos. Fast-paced highlights, memorable moments, and some kind of driving, energetic music are the basics of any hype video.

The 2013-14 BYU basketball is breaking that mold with some spectacular lip-syncing music videos — “vidtaculars” — that will apparently be released for every home game. We at Loyal Cougars wanted to treat all of you to these as they are released, giving them one home for your enjoyment. So this is your page. If the team has as much fun on the court as it does off it, we’ll be in for a great season.
