PROVO, Utah – For the first time during the 2020 BYU football season, the Cougars have released a depth chart. With game week here in preparation for the Navy Midshipmen, BYU’s first depth chart is out and it features a lot of players with starting and game experience.

2020 has long been the year that head coach Kalani Sitake has been building towards and now Sitake and his program will look to cash on in the investment with youth the past few seasons.
