BYU’s final year of college football independence is nearly here, and it’s time to talk about it during what’s been a summer staple over the past decade-plus: BYU media day.
The Cougars will hold their team-exclusive media day this Wednesday, before the program heads to the Big 12 in 2023.
What to watch for during BYU media day
Here is the programming schedule for Wednesday’s event, live on BYUtv:
- 9 a.m. MDT: “State of the Program” — BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe, head coach Kalani Sitake, assistant coaches and players will join in the conversation during the day’s premier television show, talking about a variety of subjects pertaining to this year and beyond.
