Brigham Young University is home to an athletic program that is historically rich in spirit and tradition.
Athletic events at BYU are an integral part to the student and local community life. BYU enjoys some of the most dedicated fans in the nation. The support for BYU athletics have helped contribute to the success enjoyed by the Cougars over the years in the quest for excellence.
