PROVO, UtahΒ – The countdown to BYU Football in the 2021 season is on. BYU looks to follow up last year’s 11-1 record by showing that wasn’t a fluke.

Quarterback Zach Wilson is gone and replacing him will be a top storyline entering a year that features another loaded schedule.

That loaded schedule begins on Saturday, September 4th at 8:30 p.m. (MT) in Las Vegas against the Arizona Wildcats. The game will be played at Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders.

BYU will face seven Power 5 programs on the 2021 slate plus rivalry games against Boise State and Utah State from the Group of 5 ranks.

To get ready for what should be another exciting season of Cougar Football this fall, KSL Sports will have Cougar Football Countdown videos to get you ready for the upcoming BYU Football season.

Check back here for daily updates, videos with facts, storylines, about the BYU football program. You can also follow us on Twitter or Instagram, @kslsports, or download the KSL Sports app presented by University Federal Credit Union.
