Cougars Return To Grid Iron After 20-Day Layoff
BYU (3-0) will travel to Las Vegas to take on MWC foe UNLV (0-3) on Saturday, Sept. 29, ending a 20-day layoff for the Cougars. No. 20 BYU last played on Sept. 8, defeating Cal, 44-16, in Berkeley, Calif. The Cougars' game at Mississippi State, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 in Starkville, Miss., was postponed after the terrorist attacks on the United States, marking the first time since World War II (1943-1945) BYU has not been able to play due to national concern. The game will mark the league-opener for both teams. (UNLV's MWC-opener against Colorado State was also postponed).
