SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – BYU football announced four Cougar greats as the team’s flag bearers for the upcoming rivalry game against the University of Utah.

The Cougars will host the Utes at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, September 11.

A little over 24 hours from kickoff, BYU announced its flag bearers for the contest.

BYU legends Dennis Pitta, Austin Collie, Max Hall, and Reno Mahe were selected to run flags onto the field and lead the Cougars onto the gridiron prior to kickoff.

Utah is currently on a nine-game winning streak against BYU. Hall was the last BYU quarterback to lead the Cougars to victory over the Utes.
