BYU football fans who want to get a glimpse of the team — and a blast of the past — will have that chance Friday when the Cougars hold their spring scrimmage and alumni game at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

Weather permitting, of course.

For those who can’t make it in person — admission is free to both the scrimmage and alumni game — BYUtv is providing an option for fans to tune in remotely.
