Cougar Kickoff Countdown: 80 Days until BYU at Virginia

No one is more excited about the Brigham Young Cougars kicking off the 2013 football season on August 31 at the Virginia Cavaliers than us at BLUE COUGAR FOOTBALL. Therefore, we will join the growing trend set by BYU Roster to countdown the days until the season. However, BLUE COUGAR FOOTBALL will not hijack the idea of highlighting players who's jersey number matches the number of days until the season opener. As with everything done here, we will add our own little twist.

80 years ago ...
1933--BYU was 5-4, its fourth winning season in the last five years, and seventh year in a row without a losing record. G. Ott Romney was the head coach. Biggest win was 25-0, twice, against Montana State and Colorado College. A shutout win against Western State, 13-0, gave the Cougars three shutout wins.
